"Walk to Twilight"

    Walk to Twilight


    Jilted tree,

    jingle bells played

    out, on its side


    at the curb.


    of a dog-eared



    Blanketed bronze

    “Homeless Jesus”

    curled up against

    a sculpted bench

    … crucified feet



    Its replica

    swaddled in cloth

    against a metro grate

    … grown man folded

    into a fetal position.


    Sliver of moon slung

    like a hammock

    across the semidarkness.


    The rest of the silver orb,

    the lot of felled pine,

    the contour of the womb


    are out of the picture.
