of a day

of a day

mirror
‘rain mirror’ by Little Cat

the  r   a  in   standing    like   a  dark  mirror

    in the  afternoon

turning   the room upon    itself /

the   concrete   driveway   to

water   engraved   over

w  a t  er  /

the   le a ves   gutting

     image     from   the drops

one  to   another.

 

spring    abandons    all  this     into  shadow

       raked    on the damp   /

    acres    of sky     run

to  the    edge   of the  hill.
