Porch's a Torch (Her Fire's a Force)

hot-stepping the same
minefields my pa, and
his pa warned us
bout,

then pissed their
bloody livers
out
,

when those warnings bleed
into next mornings and
glory’s crept up on
lawn to tell his
story wrong
,

sun spots won’t
bleach out,

now the front porch’s
lit up like a war torch
in beach lover’s
palm.
