lyrics

Inside,
where my feet splick-splack,
come unstuck from the floor,
beneath street sounds,
jackhammers,
bus breaks,
tires over loose steel and uneven asphalt,
that throb under the roof,
bouncing bodies wall to wall,

My little brother is legally a man,
chest to nose
with a lump of fried ice-cream
held back,
throat gently
between my forearm and bicep,
while its tan,
flaky
hand
still stung
from the not so gentle
touch
of a perfumed
cheek.
“Don’touchme.”
Bouncing bodies bound betwee-
“Don't ev’r touch me,”
as I play charades,
“Napoleon, right?”

Outside,
I stand
in the center of his
circlesquare.
“Neow wut, bigman?”
“Huh?”
“Wut neow!”

“Oh…a…"
“…Napoleon?”
