One Poem by Kevin Thomason

Second Marriage

The place they’ve argued
within the yard, night
works its calm
round instruments
plunked in chops
of grass. The porch
stands out like a jaw.
On the clothesline,
a white shirt stills,
falters, and re-begins,
awkward in halting wind,
whereas a bra with vivid
designs flurries
in delay. A voice
calls the canine,
who comes directly.
Phrases usually are not
repeated a lot.
