Wolf Moon

VI. WOLF MOON

India: Sanbun ‘2014

Penumbra…

Death is the penultimate magician
who vanishes rabbit with sleight of hand
along with woman dreams legerdemain

leaving memories of wind on a closed fan
once waved so deftly like a fairy wand;
death is the penultimate magician

swallows the soft bright scarf and fading sun
with flesh, blood and bones to that night
beyond along with woman dreams legerdemain…
