An Opiate’s Flowering Sadness

In her garden

Stones are
Mottled dogs—

A bone pile
Of lost epics

      & spring
A punch line


Appearing &

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

Café torches—

Throws its
Golden mark

To the ground
