File:Geranium 20070410.jpg

Distribution of moments.
Memory. Attention. Expectation.
A light plane, a feathery piano
Solo. The time of everyone
In the world comes apart
In pieces, a slow quiet
Dispersal. The poppies are still
Furled into themselves
Chilled morning maidens
But the musky red antique
Geranium droops open as
Do some purple blue
Unnamables whose scroll
Unravels backward like Arabic.
