"Pulse" from Girl With Death Mask
the bug spray man rings a doorbell
it lingers in the air
black widows fat & hourglass against the redbrick
against tomato vines
boy with bright pink parasol boy across the street who comes
to play with my daughter's dolls
I keep him safe
while the neighborhood thrums
its blacktop its cocking against concrete &
catcalls I remember my own switching down sidewalks
like spotlights boiling orange flowers in the trees
hissing with cicadas & electric wires
cold box my fear
not new this summer
mariposas on their migratory paths
we plant milkweed we swerve ourselves into other lanes
a music tolls not bells
the boy across the street has found a dress that fits
my closet hums
he is humming in my closet his voice is sweet
