public bathroom


I had a jacket on
I had it zipped up so tight my wings ached

I remember a lot of looking
and touching
like magnets

a box of mints
leather gloves
fences

climbing on
 
rooftops

I rolled down a grassy hill

there were so many birds
lovers, strollers
gangsters
even an elephant

there was everything
in the world
it was so real
I could see it

so beautiful
and warm
the temperature was measured in promises

Jim Hickey would say

20 promises today
t-shirt and shorts
one layer

no coat
