Orions onions

 oblique inverted potting vessels
 full of luminescent onions. 

  half the bulbs have grown out of their 
habitats sprouting at night over roof
tops on saint james avenue.

  the other half hang down along  
telepone wires across the street.

 celestrially conspicious reflecting in dull 
 orange hews on the pavement.

me and saint james stand there
 looking up to count them.

rows and rows of electric globes. 

under orions nocturnal orchard they
 flicker in the light of their own myths. 
  i to am a dreamer this night.

  i to move with the spheres first 
in the garden now under the lamps.
