The Sky in a Square
The poem first appeared in "Eastlit: Southlit supplement," October 2015.
Squares on top of squares,
the many shacks that lined
the city circumference ;
the sky above her city at dusk
shrunk into a blue square on the wall
in each of them.
shrunk to fit in her window frame,
and her square soul stared at it starry-eyed.
The squares of blue,
her eyes stitched
into the sky that spread above
the city that never loved her.
