palm fronds 

the throb of disco is never far away 

it lingers in this city 

even in the green pallid suburbia 

where we hide from concrete disarray

i often find myself swaying 

near the marble bar tops

and I think 

my arms must look palm fronds 

 jolting with a storm 

and it makes sense 

after all,

I’m embedded here 

planted in this warm earth.
