Adventure # 15, or First Date


“First Date,” 8″ by 11″ water on paper

Poem written on the back of the painting

Released from a breath held deep, glass is said to weep

sloughing slightly, impossibly, since the fall of light

across the curve and cull of her cheek; pulled

around the rim, brushing another, salted with a hymn

that cools on the church walls where a fool whispers love

raising his tone, hear the koan, measuring  the margins

the tilt and lilt of his endless lean into the bend and break

of a droplet and her image falling, calling across its horizon.
