A tangerine sun gave my birdcage a ripe rinsing
Its spacious temporary closure is uncommonly loud and clear
Dead ringer for a dime
Fingertips are spark-tinted.
Their milk contains one-percent fat
Slow results. Delay dowager’s hump.
Low-lying pain. A leaky fist.
I am willing to carve you a ten-second slice of winter.
