michigan girls

in the marble of your animal eyes
take my comfort anywhere
dry white scratches on a sunburnt shin
don’t give it a name
drowned and drinking the light
god’s eyes are closed
just like yours

straw bones nails of november clay
the way you kiss your uncle on the mouth
slow learner keep forgetful don’t give it a name
drowned and drinking the light god’s eyes are closed
just like yours
black sea resort off season days
broke heels and bare legs
pink waterline gave up on your twisted code
god’s eyes are crossed maybe just like yours

    I thought it was taken at Uncle Joe’s. Funny that we all recognized it. AND – you spelled Charlevoix correctly! Amazing.
