Belle Amie: a vision

.                       Tugboats chug down Bayou Lafourche
.                       and one can almost see through the sun-fused fog
.                       Jean Lafitte with his pirate brigands
.                       romping in robust destruction and mirth
.                       hog wild in the august sun and steam.

.                       Or perhaps they were more thoughtful,
.                       pondering violence as a metaphysical knot,
.                       pondering each how his own love is lost,
.                       himself cold and lost

.                                               twice

.                       in the counterfeit

.                       sun

.                       of self-

.                       expression –

.                       like

.                                               us
