The young yellow noon
brings a need before
& weather-blasted ship.
Low battery body--
sweet fresh blackberries
from dripping leaves.
Ladies legs like glowing towers
make new loneliness feel
more at home.
I squash the shadow of my tomato.
My visitor sings without abrasion.
Growing wolves want and get
orchards filling a black wagon.
I sense a tragic scene happening--
your crown overriding grass.
