Sunshine State

skittish, that shy James    face burning red

reading of Anna Bolena    Old Coppernosed Henry

walking through floret beds    Black Eyed Susan

some rain    (reminding him of a film

starring Natalie Portman)    Why so shy? James?

James kissing the salt from knees, self-conscious

the rain making new rivers of the park grass

he stops at a pub on Pine Street    stops and

orders a 7 and 7    (no joke)

we leave him here in this moment as he occupies it,

noiselessly resigned, building a scream for the quarry
