walking through the darkness Lyla

home and wanton yearning purchased

semblance of the ordered palate

dirt and toes prehensile shaking

maledictions shared in whispers

bon vivant of naught and nothing

turning ghosts by pen to pictures

her late thoughts to chutes and ladders

hemingway and sinclair lewis

baggage claim and strident laughing

tricksters of the summer solstice

laid in layers lining Lyla
