a poem for gabby

by Octavia McBride-Ahebee

 

on monday

the school yard swelled

with hysterical enterprise

spawned

by you.

                

limbs,

            l o              n g,

                               root-like,

a kaleidoscope of browns

catapulted

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

in

    the

              

 

                              bottom

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.
