Mississippi River, New Orleans
Mississippi River, New Orleans

Purple shadows drop
in my hand
The river falls at sundown
Ships’ horns fly on currents
of muted air, over would-be
lovers stalled by red lights, yearning
for saturation
The river carries its cargo, unresisting
waves ripple through weed-choked sand
The day fades to darkness
a delirious outcome wings into
