Sho Nuff

by Christopher Barnes

as the sky’s love-onion
belly-buttons the night
flung phrases of will-you-be-mines
glow like wounds
and the curtain closes on blue

skips trump the old tunes
sassin’ the blues back
heads bend flowering
onto the glitter of black ice
scating on the air I sing
“night was made for remembering”
