Mae

Cuban heels running all along
a vertical horizon in barely black,
twisting and turning to the
rhythm of a foreign jitterbug
in a frozen dance hall –
where every ration is remembered
for all of the people who cannot forget,
boundaries that float across
the surface of an unmade world.

With thanks to Ali Dufty for the original inspiration of “horizon, jitterbug, float”.
