swaying and screaming
in a Janice Joplin summer
we touched
the tops of the palms
and never came down

  the butterfly
opens and closes
its wings
that first I love you
is all about shutter speed

    he informs me
I’ve been working for years
on this garden –
as if there were limits to love
buried deep beneath the ground

a good woman,
kind and modest,
but still,
I wish for a little

  I was wife two
of a polygamist
I felt loved
until wife three
destroyed my rosebush

    one snowflake
drifts over the waterfall
the first time
he sleeps in my bed
the wind howls
