Sketch on Self; Late June

Clearly floating in surefire struts,
is a young man
leaning back in a creaking wooden chair
outside a sandwich shop
beside all the vegetable-selling stalls.
The market sunlights
feels all the better
when all the wonderful faces
turn to look at dark-dirt born potatoes.
"$1.99/pommes de terre, tres sucré !"
A fresh stretch
into the brimming hour,
the immersed breather
carries himself on the pavement
holding between both hands
an utmost ascending burst of life.
Green park hillsides
are sown sweetly
into the woven tapestry
upon which he weaves
his stitched times of talks walks
and gliding slides of wheels
atop the longest of North-South streets.
A translation to freedom
is struck with the harmony of flickering matches
outside on walled terraces
covered by the night's hat of stars and reflected light.
In a circle of spinning tounges
he will place his phrases
alongside growing fires of conversation
Touch his shoulder,
expect that head to turn today
but at night
look for those sprawling breaths
which surely celebrate
all who dance.
Leaping between open chests,
firmly the bundled tapestry of his
will be unfurled on sunny days
where green lawns and lush simplicity
touch the tinged frays of dreamy woken-moments.
