man of curves and bones from brooklyn

there is a man with fingers
soft like grandmother’s words
wide like gathered meat in casings

he has voice box cluttered with cigarette remains and
freshly mowed, sucked, inhaled joints

someone forgot to give him hair

someone forgot to tell him last night that he is beautiful
before the liquor
before the drugs
before the rage

man of curves, small
nipples, big
belly

of crooked brooklyn
delinquent language

wide dance moves

hope you are well
this morning
