Solstice


It stays and stays
the longest day
Christians stand around
the Laundromat
talking about the Jews
annoying the city
the white in the sky caresses them
the afternoon licks itself
it raises little goose bumps
like an odalisque
a yoga mat of clover
in the park an accent
that sweeps away
the fog 3:50 PM a storm
can tell you everything
about the movies
afterwards a calm
a silence
trees and plants
are softly throbbing
it’s how they breathe
