Melted Copper on the Cobblestone

Kicking rocks
dancing between raindrops

but never sad
when they splash upon my flesh

or soak these fabrics
to the marrow

What happens when
baptism mixes
with the flames
of phoenix?

That’s called a problem, pal

so grab a pail
and stir up a thirst
to see which one remains
come first harvest of the aftermath

What silver and platinum
strewn like straw over the earth
