I want to pull you apart like a pomegranate & see how your shadow breaks
the terraced flesh of canyons & seeds. Held in each shard, like the side view mirror of cars
& the women sunning themselves on the rooftops of Pine street;
the light reflecting off their skin, glasses & teeth. Off the shine of their red lipstick.
Off the individual pulp of their lips.
Each heart occupying a small pocket of space, in the heat of the sun.
