My initial public offering, so to speak, on

Transfixed like these well-

grounded, gilded laurels,

I am spreading sturdy roots

similar to a Gordian knot

all along the alcove

as Aurora's maiden light

dispels a saffron mist

and cannot otherwise

be composed and unshielded:

a coppice virtuous as Artemis.


Why then should a spectacular image

such as this ever wish to unsettle

my psyche, drenching my reason

with purposeless self-reproach,

as if these leaves just might happen

to be the entangling, dangling tresses

of an alluring Daphne attempting to

deceive the Apollo in me?
