POEM: First Day of Spring at St. Mark’s 2000

FIRST DAY OF SPRING AT ST. MARK’S 2000

          Sunshine orange on brick, orange on
     flat gravestones at St. Mark’s. Orange
     the sun, dapple orange the skin,
     skin much more color than skin, from
     sun to shin, no shiver, no quake, lush warm
     skin bread, sun orange bake.

          Sunshine fleck cherry blossoms, James
          points apart the gate. Pigeon dropping:
          ping. Bricks. Sun on bricks, sun orange
          through bars and gate. Let’s stand here
          in the sun by the garbage and write.

     Sunshine on jeans, toast orange on black,
     the birds, the birds, the birds. Situationist
     shadows block heat on runny, orange sun,
     orange sun. Sun color flavored bread, leg,
     fruity gum in tongue, in sun, gum on brick,
     sun brick, on skin.

          Sunshine on cigarette butts, on shoe soles,
          on blossoms, on wrappers, on blemished
          hands. Sunshine on orange, sunshine on brick,
          sunshine to paper, sunshine through skin,
          sunshine by hand.
