Square Dance

by Valyntina Grenier

No other over you for the climate fire to end this whorl in wonder desire w/ our life’s great fortune confounded by virus/ police violence cancel the rocket spread out the world weary sheet again over our brains/ banners/ bones Nirvana wins our hearts twin the hypotenuse to a new song on the radio we in wonder will we go with our lucky love north to Portland to the Oregon coast pure color/ halcyon tide/ silence/ freedom from heat wave of Chaos feast
