336 Longs Peak Ave.--By ayaz daryl nielsen--United States

336 Longs Peak Ave.

together, we grow 
into wizened children
this festival of us,
something so true, it’s 
often taken for granted
holy to defend, a 
sadness worth dying for
and yet, and yet
nothing stops ending
here comes the night
look, the cat wants out,
how like a cat.
kiss me.
