Tuesday poem #483 : df parizeau : DFW


after Lindsey Jordan

I’m feeling low
I’m not into sometimes.

Decisiveness shines
in your eyes,
contrasts the radiant
afternoon sky:

linoleum gray.

The terminal floor—
a full stop—
your face,
piercing me
like flechettes of light

I will soon ascend

Turning around
as I cross the terminal,
our three year rule broken.

Our three year rule broken
as I cross the terminal:
turning around.

Beyond, I will soon
ascend clouds,
like flechettes of light.

Piercing me,
your face
a full stop.

The terminal floor
linoleum gray.

Afternoon sky
contrasts the radiant
in your eyes—
decisiveness shines:

I’m not into sometimes
I’m feeling low.
