OPTIONAL POETRY

a border is
a boundary or

a perimeter
that defines a place

in physical space
but in gerund form

bordering implies
proximity to a dangerous extreme

each sense topical
timely but also ominous

an antonym of timely
it’s hard to name

exact shades of gray
winter sky suitcloth

ashy ashen
censer censor

one is smoke
the other smoke

and mirrors
better to clearly state

a border is a line
and a line

can be toed
but also drawn

(you better)
