A commitment, rain.
Not a symmetry, not

how it was is half the fun. half the story.

the grit underneath nails. the last bit of meat left on the bone. a clinging

of years. yaa the years. softening like plastic. hoarded in narrowing closets

in the coldest of spare rooms. mothball mama. all the how it could have beens.

to prove you’d been here except the glass
you drank from.

‘The Outing’ by Yomi Sode

Onlookers witnessed your wrath that night
how your fist rose to the heavens,

striking down as if Ṣango[1] lived within you.
Thirty going on thirty-one. I wasn’t sure what to say.
