Strikethrough 25

I.
On those days on those sidewalks
 
in this bedridden summer
 
by anonymous fences,
 
and sun-snaking vines
 
you’re holding my hand
 
and our hands become ginger
 
A carnal display
 
of interlocked skin
 
Gnarled and proud
 
So strange and so crude
 
we laugh and we laugh
 
Connected by root

A carnal display
 
of interlocked skin
 
Gnarled and proud
 
So strange and so crude
 
we laugh and we laugh
 
Connected by root
 
 
insert nostalgia
omit transcience
insert knowing
 
 
 
 
insert determination
omit ego
insert humor

omit contentment
insert surprise
