crown down

reading the address of a company on the back of a package – (unnamed phenomenon):

how one can become wistful over a zip code, even just the first three digits
because their whole body knows
the taste of all seasons there and
the sensations of biking the ridges and neighborhoods and river paths and bridges there
and over time, how the learned the names of everything that grew around them

all the little persimmons l ined up
(crown down) in my windowshill
in all shades of green to dusty orangepink
plucked from fallen branches
just outside my door

ya’ll are beautiful!!! i call out
when the dennis birthday memorial ride forks
sending baigz and i left and the rest of the crew to the right
and at this distance i can see the great glow of all the lights parading and the bikewheels spinning
