Madison

Danny Thang Ho

 

Barney explodes and the
Madison skyline inks lavender
Hendrix haze your skin the
perfume into sidewalk cracks
I untickle the nose
and its lavender
from our hands buckle heliotrope
2 eggplants bicycle the lakes
sponge-blotting the water with plums
we exhale
lavender
lips brush
lavender
‘til the haze of Madison snows us proles
into blinking still Grimace statues
beet-dyed hands buckled we
State Street bicycle feet
