"Pulse" from Girl With Death Mask 

the bug spray man rings a doorbell
it lingers in the air

black widows fat & hourglass against the redbrick
against tomato vines

boy with bright pink parasol    boy across the street who comes
to play with my daughter's dolls

I keep him safe
while the neighborhood thrums

its blacktop its cocking against concrete &
catcalls    I remember my own switching down sidewalks

like spotlights boiling    orange flowers in the trees
hissing with cicadas & electric wires

cold box    my fear
not new    this summer

mariposas on their migratory paths
we plant milkweed    we swerve ourselves into other lanes

a music tolls    not bells
the boy across the street has found a dress that fits

my closet hums
he is humming in my closet    his voice is sweet
