across the border,
at the edge of ohio,
for a solid hour,

i wait for sunrise, only
to be greeted by morning haze

mysteries, like the unnamed
flowering tree in

the backyard, that scarlet come-

there will always be
moments that will feel tender
and raw, a red sky

moment, for which shepherds and
sailors will have no shared rhyme

despite everything, still
leaning on her southern
charm, like a new art form
