Latch lightning
glinting shadows
I’m in my garden
puzzling wildness
the hair of my child is no less sweet
nor in your eyes is less light
Dear asteroid
Dear tulip
your fragrant bent limbs.
Ground, both under and over, moves whether or not.
Mama whispers, “Life feels like being shot through a shaft at ever quickening speed,” and I see she is crying now.
