just today

he digs his toes into the ground,
running the city block again.

he rolls through another stop sign,
weaving his way, intersection by intersection—

he kneels into the cold grass,
he falls and falls, wilting anew before the sun, falling:

we are not only flesh and bones—
we are from it, though far, far, sometimes,
that which over the bones layers its flesh!
