Running, fuzz above
his lip, salty tears slipping
down on the parched sweat

Early morning and
Thirsty socks are yearning for
Damp track, new records

An old birthday plate
has a crack down the center,
collecting new dust

A new phone, shiny
digits assaulted by crude,
overgrown fingernails

A magician’s robe
collects the smooth fingerprints
of aging children

Glossy violins
in timid hands, savoring
bittersweet resin
