First Noon

Marigold faux alligator
skin—this is fashion, I suppose, paired
with a pursed-lip moment,
all the decisions never simple,
since everything

tanks, tips, takes
flight, I guess,

but who is to mention the breeze is late
when we already took breaths?
Not everything is possible at once,
I guess you should already know, so
I sweep across the street, consider your sight—
hazard lights or sun on my shoulder.
