Brilliant Summer

Wed Jul 6th, 2016

Brilliant Summer

on certain days life is a sea

intermittently hushed

 

furious, unaccountable

in its repetitions it flashes

 

is a terrible blade it cuts

brutally cuts while

 

misery bleeds into the

larger thing whose greenish-

 

bluish waves are

masks of time we are part of that

 

not entirely sightless

we discern a wave now

 

yesterday’s remote enthusiasm 

now brilliant summer
