Rising

Rising

A Poem by Katherine Haizlip

Life is fluid
like the cement of the city
that the hapless and the helpless
alike
grind into themselves
and their soles and souls.

Either the sky bleeds light onto the leaves
or the leaves bleed change into the sky,
and intoxicate the top hats
and the powdered wigs
of morning.
