shot glass
"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Adam Day


Crossing Lines

Nurse of mists
finding her place

down the block,
windows watching

beanbag rounds
and iPhone glow.

Sky's dipper hangs
low; egret nested

in the moon; police,
students of performance

studies like hiding
under the table

at a dinner party,
birthing future children

of the present fire.
