Fall 2009 / Issues / Poetry 2009 / Volume 40

fades to yellow: — Ayla Crosswhite

today the color of bruises is beautiful

green like tornado skies

fade fast like good days

eight ball in the side pocket

beer foamy in the pitcher

everybody knew

today the rips are fresh

in flesh frayed like denim knees

fade fast the sun downs

bicycle frame in the back seat

water cold in the cup

nobody slept
