Susan Diridoni


not having

eyes for glacial motion …

senses swim

night’s echoes

steeling will upon

the dawn

throated bird …

your song of fresh

cut years

climbing the

eclipse of your heart …

my trumpet

losing my

balance near solstice

dreams collide

three crows

darker, thicker, in the

filigree tree

the viscous masque

of memory too dim …

wings unraveling

in the sand,

a ladder patiently
