Torn Shades

 How, in the first place, did
they get torn-pulled down hard
too many times: to hide a blow,
or sex, or a man
in stained pajamas? The tear blade-shaped,
serrated, in tatters.
And once, in a house flatside to a gas station, as snow fell at a speed and angle you could lean on, two small hands (a patch of throat, a whip of hair across her face)- two small hands parting a torn shade to welcome a wedge of gray sunlight into that room.
