Rolling Marbles

On a quiet street corner, boys roll marbles.
Nor heat nor dust can pause those sweet thuds
which resonate off the wall
till the shadows stretch long.

Err not these inks ere they vaporize.
My quill has raised the spirits that once were razed.
I write to be wise but you think me otherwise.
Eyes aged with rum, burn every page-
wonder what's stronger when this heart of mine bleeds.
Love that pours from your jar, seldom ajar
or tears that needle when you leave me in needs.
