Blue passion flower, anvil
for butterflies delivered
by a soft yellow-dressed afternoon.
I think of the amethyst cross
between her breasts,
coffee in small rococo cups
and wood smoke that braids
her hair a fragrance of olive.
Her hands speak
like keepers of my old dreams.
Let the bad winds blow, they say,
they will never open scars.
