on days like these, beneath

on days like these, beneath
the mostly muted sky,
the sun takes indulgences,
kisses adoration into the
cobblestone streets, kneads
radiance into each curve,
taking time to rehearse
the escape, to permit
in his absence a forbidden
phosphorescing
, a public

she is a part of those
Kentucky sunsets –

an abandoned
radiance, a fragile
dismantling of
duty – and with
a slow pedaling, she
diminishes the
low-voltage hum
of day, drawing
a curtain of
constellations
in its place
