Bought & Sold

Breakneck ruminants
murmur the mummers’ tune.

Invisible maroons
cornered amid cabin annunciation.

Witnessing Africans
bob amidst Carolina white pines.

Wood Ducks remind us
of the forest incantation codex.

Fail-safe misery
loves the rusted vestiges of plantation tethers.

Star counting amphibians
purchase the old slave marketplace.

Unpredictable joy.
Mighty rally soars November’s voter count.
