painted in a wash of mauve

surface cracked

burgundy stripes

here & there

 

catastrophe everywhere—

everything so bright

cobalt sky fuchsia kite

golden sun hung

suspended in blue

above emerald grass

lovers cling tight

bodies mounded like garden beds

spread across the lawn

passion blooming

holding & holding on

 

night a wash of black

everything together

below dots of crystal clear

here & there
