Even Spring Has the Night
Skin like the Thames, the Shard’s beacon yoked to the Surrealist show at the Tate Modern.
White nights on Jomfruland, goose whistled past dawn, Venus frosty above Christiania,
My hare legs in slippers, Carnatic as a stave kirk, toward Herre, Norway to yearn,
Are the kids bothering you, the canal banked no horses, “time is everything.”
Time veined the truth, out to the churchyard I waded, toward lichen we turned.
