POEM AT DAWN

wet carpet of petals
rain-inflected morning
alarm at dawn
indicating impending sweat
a constriction of lungs
anticipation of contact
feet on wet concrete
sidewalks marred by fallen leaves
the occasional branch
sadness inverted
euphoria
engendered nothingness
the taste of your lips
salt, sweet, seaweed
many-ways unforgettable
how you came to me
light blinding power, or
two small rabbits
Japanese ceramics
one black, one white
yin-yang flow
what seemed oppositional
was not at all
the circuits enabled
flow
gorgeous and sundry gifts
your beauty
dawn
