Mueller Airport Subdivision

there are red-winged blackbirds here
that land and look like blackbirds

obsessively well-spaced trees
like perforations in the airport subdivision

like dimples in the margins
of a hastily done school project

before it’s torn out and slammed
on the teacher’s desk

i am here beneath myself
hear that I would never raise

a child or my hands to you ever
