impoverishing-d (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)


squatt’n down
loose dark dirt
in here where they left
to wait here near to behold
sundown peopling is the potion
it filling this mould
with children
rolled rolling on up
on into they self
inside in here
where it they using

one spoon it spilled
and’it spilling on
into many flatteninged bowls
who they fulling
on this what it done
in a store some where
by they self all alone
baggy pants fall’n down
with’ah gun in they hand
scared in there like they mean
still playing dare by they self
with this some body else
that who they never ever seen
