sirens. cygnus



polish jet a glossy black as night
at night the lamp strokes the quiet sea


longitude seagull blown inland
you walk along a path


all that was ever wanted was an orchard
to whisper in the ear.

decorated with pomegranates, a crown of stars, a rod, a heart-shaped shield with the symbol for venus, a field of ripe wheat


the weeds could be constellation.

waves. diamond. veronica.

stars like orchards



heavy with fruit
