Rogue Baby Palm

Rogue Baby Palm rises

from beneath the brick

he stands up waving

surrounded by the water

 

Functions of his body

gesture like my hand

Baby clings to black

older Earths beneath me

 

Cars pass Baby splashing

Tires barely miss him

Kids run over kicking

Baby in his shoulder

 

Bird stole Baby’s eye

Dog chewed Baby’s fingers

Rogue Baby Palm rises

standing taller after loss

unnamed
