An Opiate’s Flowering Sadness

In her garden

Stones are
Mottled dogs—

A bone pile
Of lost epics

      & spring
A punch line

Of

Appearing &
Disappearing

Ears
In the grass—

The earth has

An opiate’s
Flowering sadness

      & the sun—

By day a
Yellow boat

Setting out

      By night
A bloom of

Huddled
Café torches—

Throws its
Golden mark

To the ground
