For Violet – by Kevin T. Poet For Hire


violet with the pink

balloon, how your hair

is cut straight across your forehead

& how i remember once

had straight-banged peers

missing tooth grins

some sort of monster under the bed fears

violet with the

pink balloon

may your hair grow straight & long

rhythms & subtleties of a private song.

for violet, bangor, ME 2013



This was at a festival in my city yesterday πŸ™‚
