Easter 2013
At 3:30 AM I wake you Someone is shooting We listen to the night as if it is something hard we are up against Again pop pop pop Firecrackers you say What a way to usher in this dawn or any other Later picking up gravel rocks to fling at the cat that persists in hunting the bird baths I discover tail feathers Red Cardinal Male Explaining the female in the autumn olive in such distress yesterday

All the fine arts are species of poetry--Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I once believed in autumn, the transformative power of death, would gladly follow in Persephone's footsteps, ravish pomegranate seeds, suckle on crimson promise: I believed I would always return, always be longed for. I was close to springtime then petals unfurling, unplucked. Now late summer scorches my blousy hem; red tongue devours what's grown too many seasons, renders a harvest of loss. Fire conjures its own weather out of August's ragged end. My hair ash, I fear the ninth month. Now Hades claims too much.
