—through glass
a near tangle of bare forsythia
beneath draped wires pole to pole
snapped shot of unedited ruminations
limbs
folding upon themselves
graytone chiaroscuro,
a dispensation of light
uncalledfor in whimskull —further right
the barrel arc of a stone wall
familiar as spots on the back of a hand
solid as the conspiracy of crystals in a cold savanna
between here and the neighbor’s shed
at the center of
…………………………………. Hosanna!
