Chalk Art

By: shelbi henny

I was perplexed 
to tell you
how I have drowned.
Surrounded by circumference
leading rivers.
To opposite
Tear me pieces of silver.
Breathing courses
of abominations
to see the tarp
We spare no excuses
Longevity to our spare
Hearts we frame
Ammunition and empty shells
Explosions of words
Scrapped on concrete
Like chalk
Our stories beginning
In colors
Only to drown once
Rain pours on dry
Sidewalks we claim
Never to end again
Like children
we draw
