The sun splits
to shine on a small creature
of worth, body vanished.
The light bleeds
from your slits.
I inhale, gripe, shooting upwards
Love poured down, over the earth.
Drained soil, dried trees’ leaves
Occupied a vast space.
A flowering plant drools,
Emptied of moisture, putting the sun
in its power, a generous dose
to diminish. A sunset,
gripped the unfolding of your scent,
It is so lovely to rest in cool
Yet fervent light.
We are happy it happens this way.
Exposed, circling the town.
Some things borrowed for this day.
A generous tower, to face.
