stabbing in the harbor of Baltimore

these kids cluster
and clatter in a swarm
we saw them pouring in to the harbor
like warmed up molasses
slowly
in the heat
boiling up to a head –

till the whole lot of them
burst
exploded in waves
foaming over the street
except one
dropped to the ground,
punctured,
deflated.
