Morphology of the

By Renée Sarojini Saklikar

Let lists suffice, those rubbed, we that assemble:
Cardo, stipes, galea, and palupus.
The City, our essence, we might communicate,
syllable, grammar and line, beds violet, wild thyme
were we to find, cracked cement, east side court

around condo cranes, City of Night, wander
spray cans in hand, fill our shoes with sand.
O for a hundred thousand
homes we might call to,
all the lights coming on at once—
