blessing
A Weathercat snap, the green map of season

under
the maple
under
starlight
i stood
under so
many leaves
in darkness
so much
life
in them
like water
brimming
on to
air
the air
hoarse
with
starlight

The music accompanying the reading is taken from a performance by Italian pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli of Chopin’s ‘Andante Spianato’ that he added as a prelude to his Grande Polanaise Brillante Op.22. A blackbird stamped the approval of its own melody upon it.
