From “The Ringing of the Rain has a Forgiving Grace”


11-14

A tangerine sun gave my birdcage a ripe rinsing

Its spacious temporary closure is uncommonly loud and clear

Dead ringer for a dime
 

12-25

Fingertips are spark-tinted.

Their milk contains one-percent fat

Slow results. Delay dowager’s hump.

Low-lying pain. A leaky fist.

I am willing to carve you a ten-second slice of winter.
