St. Peter Claver (patron saint of slaves)

We must speak to them with our hands

before we try to speak to them with our lips.

you bit my finger and said

that we were all born

from one peach pit

and that your heart

felt like a velvet chair

left out in the rain.

this parking lot

is not a star

and the line

running down the center

of the road home

is anything

but straight.
