Everyone's Generous

a park around 7. and sunset. early march. sun bouncing up from the grass at all angles and this soft falling hill like a candleflame light and a saucer of warm liquid wax.

some dogs playing chasing. some people sitting out. my god – there are times in the world you'd be generous to offer a share of. and everyone's generous, passing out bottles of beer out of shopping bags, handfuls of loose cigarettes. ten-year-olds bike riding, teenagers kissing,

a woman, some distance off reading and smoking a joint. and that's spring air too, and the smell of it wafting occasionally

over: like cracked open greenhouses, crowding with mushrooms on wood. wet scents and plants mulching. composts and burning hot weather.
