Low and Golden / new poems 2011

A Second Chance in the Sun

In the heat and long light
Of the ecliptic, the solstice
Hanging above the Tropic of Cancer,
A memory of a cold June
That belongs to another life,
One bereft of freshwater breezes,
But somehow secreting
A second chance in the sun,
Behind the scratch of
Unseasonal woolens I wore
To combat the shivering
Of suddenly being alone
In the summer of my years.
