On My Two-Year-Old Brother Gone Missing

Not his ride-on pony,
but its print on the grass.

(    )

Galloping white space gathering its fields.
Nicker whisper. Thunder burn.

(   )

Once at Angelo’s grocery,
I reached for a small boy.

(   )

We thought, perhaps Rhode Island.
Or a border town nearby.

(    )

The stars on his face
haven’t mapped his way back.

(     )

Turn off the afternoon.
Then, the sky.
