Sport 9: Spring 1992

Clearing the Air

Clearing the Air

The sky, sky blue—
a space completely
And nothing
I can do.
And nothing
you can do.

For we have implemented
our dissatisfaction
grumbling like an appendix—
its (pre)text of thunder
scrolled heavy over our house.

Days and nights
back to back
and now this gap,
this split, this ease,
the air so fine
I find I
cannot breathe.
