Dandelion Toes

dandelion toes
rubbing off green
and tasting the nectar
of late july dusk
thick denim
proud naked ankles
rusted metal warm nighttime lying down
warm metal
lying down overalls
and such
color shrugging off color
turning to blue
orange rust softening blue
so dusky sweat can't revive it
frayed straw
and so on
lying on warm rust
dusky july toes
softened by dandelions
