Exposed Brick

originally published in Carnival Literary, Coffee December 2013

Exposed brick
faux
walls of bare yellow
sunlight stained glass
people past
walking slow
fast
stroll
trees uproot
following gazes
and columns
join in parades
held on gray
days
roses
thorning sides
like floats
or rootbeer
or beer
or scotch whiskey
on summer days
in the islands
of my dreams.
