a poem for gabby

by Octavia McBride-Ahebee


on monday

the school yard swelled

with hysterical enterprise


by you.



            l o              n g,


a kaleidoscope of browns


by your example,

depaved belligerent asphalt;

their mounts and dismounts forged new greenbelts  

-4 inches wide-flanked

by spotters of  white

sage and fennel.


these uniformed girls and boys abandoned






of the national vault                                                              h

bro    e       l o s                                                g

     k             o e                                  i

                           vaulted               h


into a humid morning,

into180 degrees of protracted splendor.
