Higher than the minivan you slept
a winter in, American Legion

parking zone, siphoning fuel for warmth,
however not a lot better. Cinder-block

condo constructing on Homestead,
a pair miles from mother’s. Acquired in

by way of the window. Waded by way of
the cans and bedding. Left it open

for the odor. Tried to not look
on the stain. Tried to be respectful

like in a museum. Stood so lengthy
in entrance of your dresser, my brother

touched my elbow. The whole lot
we contact, you touched. Your socks.

Your coat. The money in your pockets.
The cellophane from a recent pack.

Zippo with a carving of a whale,
proud ship within the distance.
