Live Oak by Chuck Taylor

I have lived poor
just to stand in your shade,
to put one hand to your
burdened shoulders
that droop to ground
and rise again.
And yes, I have set my
other hand into the sun
to see the unscientific
correspondence,
how my veins crook
like the brave black
twist of you
against the sky
