and dam water feels a shiver few willow drapes share.
Bright leaks via their wigwam re-purple the thin beans
then quickly the sunshine tops treetops and is shortened
into an afternoon. far and wide stands pat beside its shadow
for the nice bald radiance by no means obvious in dreams.
-from "Aurora Prone"
