Leaf, Shoe, Razor





what would leaf and shoe write
what would worldly paradise look like?

shampoo bottles dew-brindled,
lost earth-visible stars

parking spot, paring knife
cash receipts, shadow

between woe and wealth
disposable razors river

between earnestness and game
leaf and shoe like a train

time sweet like glue
or some perceiv├Ęd root

leaf and shoe then
lightning’s tart flute
