Areas of Weakness (Day 451)


following you around 
laughing or playing
suffering needlessly 
in the middle   blue 
as fieldstone and long 
as a ride along to our
broken places  muddling 
our meaning because
they are neighborhood 
voices  agitated  come out 
to soak up asphalt heat
under a violet fence 
the kind movie cowboys 
ride along to check 
for areas of weakness 
in need of repair
