Untitled

More bench than stone
has that scent from ashes
made with wood, painted green

before it should have been
though the grass you stick in your shoes
is new too, knows nothing

except to be closer, warmed
as if it once had arms
is picking up pieces

for later where it's not so painful
to sweat by dropping things
in the dark and softer.
