feet toward Japan.”

Scene Two:

Waltzing together incipient lights,
Music transposed echoed heavenly grace,
Accompanies first harmonious nights;

I dream of lilacs and lavender mist,
Adrift susurrus...

after long drought and disorder;
it rains drenching the empathetic 
scraggy soil of the heart
it rains moistening the rocks of anger

On a Crisp Autumn Evening
The susurrus breeze 
of spring’s ingénue trees 
now rasps and wheezes,
rustling sparse leaves as
the trees, now crones,
rest brittle bones,
primed for winter’s coming.

Dimly azure, aglow on videotape,
Red, blue,...

here I woke
and she waits for me there,
