Soft Geometry

someone’s gotta watch,
ill-qualified though I am,
these dusks and blue dawns

* * *

soft geometry
in fresh snow, clean for a while
a view of the heart

* * *

this dust on my floors
same as what buries cities
under more cities

    lines devoted to the seven-hill city which cradles all the dearest ones, both alive and “”ceased to be.”
