Sultry blue descends
Through slow cloud collide-divide
Into green torpor


Sculptured heart’s veins
Leap from imprisoning wall
Capturing a heart


Captured heart’s veins
Leap from imprisoning wall
Sculpturing a heart


In a high window
Faire green marijuana
Springs in southern light.


Tramontana in
Madrid light on light melts
Black into corners
Daylight flickers furtively
On the blade of Mack the Knife.

*Tramontana: summer tempest.


The window open,
The fleeting rider has passed
& will not return.


To a Wilting Weed.

Under the silver
moon drink night´s water in shade,
embrace dawn & bloom.


Black chrome gleams silk sheen,
a black Madrid night shining
through African dust.


My brother is on
the ridge & I on the bridge,
below, same suburbs.


Day descends darkly
Entertaining hidden winds
Yet to be unleashed.


Leave O morning fly
For by twilight you will die
‘Neath another sky


August’s golden sun
Died in a blaze of glory
September’s bloom falls.


Full September moon
Waxes silver on silver
Birch Fly Agaric.
