As I happen in your life, you begin to comprehend
I’m a maturing apparition. You’re contrary
bearings. I’m steadfast mourning. You reconsider
talent. I’m so many lost causes. You’re Baltimore’s
perfumed night in ancient contexts. I’m hostilities
originating in beauty. You’re almost a taxi ride
home from the airport. I’m a sentry statue flanked
by thistles on my town common. When we engage,
you’re more expressive than any boom box.
