The Roof

The Roof

Alain’s Modelo spilled

foamy tear ran striated

navy matte roof grit

mystery machine, pop

white tear singularity

froth, trickle,windshield

crack one open –

slip the hood, down

the horizon, fire, illegal

Mexican gunpowder

(dontcha know Chinese invented)

mottled downtown Los Angeles.

Every flash in the pre-night gloaming,

an argument won, twixt

pre-adolescence, fathers all

every minor explosion

a tiny, grateful insurrection.
