Southernwood Jacaranda


jacaranda colors in november
violet is not the river nor a street
not even an insidious sky
it’s just another time creeping up trees

collateral junctions
past known faces
and uncalled remembrances
am i there
have i left
violet is daylight
seeping nerves
patterns of unequal
