If On A Hot Yellow Day


If on a hot
yellow

day a rose
overhung

the garden
wall,

soon to be
walked

past & not
ignored,

as its fallen
petals

pronounced
on the

pavement like
so many

syllables of
summer,

there floats
blue note

out an open
window

as a young boy
in a red

plastic car says
hello.
