KIRU XXXXXIII


Nice how night shrinks
life. Kids cries distant

in the quiet. Flushed
young man comes

from a hedge gap, after him
comes a young woman

with wild nodding
detaching from her light

skirt a clinging twig. Man
resituates his cap. They smoke

staring at a branch
of poplar above. Keyboards

and monitors strung
from limbs. Fall asleep

with her feet
in his hands.
