Kentucky Quartet: Deep Ends

Picture portraits, and people
romance at Cork Harbour
a child’s book of verse
this big fake world
shining threads
narcissus
insists.

Dramatic persons, and moods
days and nights at knights
in company with child
grandfather’s farm
an Irish garland
wildflowers
deepen.

Voyage to the Fortunate Isles
grace notes from that time
frankincense and myrrh
whatsoever still loves
on a country walk
to new worlds
sur la route.

Petals of our lives in poetry
palace-burners, complete
render an apocalypse
not by bread alone
cautious rebels
enter earth
invisible.
