What remains in the background.

aloe and bike marks
broken string
clarifying verb
dust of suppertime
eastern parkway
echo’d gender in your back pocket
falsified accent
glass harp and your bladder
jest of your dialect
knife fight
lesson plan from ghost’s milk
missed messages
piece of callus
questionable liar
railroad tracks rubble of voice
red dress
rest stop on the way toward your country
some blood
some coffee
that hash I almost smoked before we poem’d
two bends and a fold
u   u
wonder what would occur if you claimed me now
x x x x
your tooth
zipper lungs and zipper grunt and the day you stopped calling me ________ .
