From Gentle Elbows

from nearly running from our feet from along the fence
from a spot to watch our cordial practice wars from
before the next war scheduled to see its protests

from an image to impeach the audience from sharing a mask
from the group you're held from through the recruiters
from smiles whispered from one eye-catching ear to another's

from the rose-colored banter of cardinals from cotton-fields
with a tenor from a pink council striking from offering
giants candy from belly rivals from foreign work tactics
