holding rocking
inhaling each other
every time
close as first breaths
in a new world

  ten years ago
I planted a poppy
orange and compliant …
scary with its boasting
it now clumps down the street

    poppy petals
in a storm-ravaged field …
how they still keep
the deep crimson
in a final hold of light

against the light
your song rises to catch
mine in flight
behind us a faded moon
steals a shooting star

crisp red ones,
diced just so –
my tears
for perfection
