If Someone Is Beautiful Surely This Is an Accident

If Someone Is Beautiful Surely This Is an Accident

Coincidence of bone and skin
parent and posture

and scooting-over cloud
letting light fall over a person

and traffic forcing them to wait
to go to the other side of the street

and year it is now and year
in which another child shoved

their young self onto the sidewalk
earning the little glistening

scar above the mouth
a seam’s stitch poking out
