Behind Things

Train tracks.    Becoming your words.
Effort.    Mouth.      White gashes in the walls.
Baby screams as paintings.     Warm spell.

Opera of the poor.   Over and over.
Someone practices in anger an aria of poverty.
Where a window.    Should be.    A hole.

A painted hole.    A mouth on a porch.
A painted mouth on a porch.    Next.
A red geranium.     Stink of armpit.
