Down in the courtyard
Children are playing as
Blackbirds gather in the trees
As if it’s a meeting to
Which they have been summoned

Was a little older than the other boys

Last (insert appropriate deletion) aberration wandering
“Walking backwards” the inert wildness of it
She explains everything by a look in her face
Seldom have so many [I am exhausted]
Tomorrow we will (but it might not) happen but if it does

When I get young
I will have a party
But until then
I will sit and wait
