Untitled Fragments

August 22, 2012

by Mark W. Kidd

Whirling sweetheart,
flash of color on the wheel —

violins and fittings,
tailpieces, pegs, chinrests, bridges and bows,
softly: “how like you this?” in summer cotton

tiny wires
crackling   braided   taut

Honey moons,
her toes curl around the stone,
kick —

the man is stooped,
sore arms full of marigolds

our guests check out,
chaise lounge propped
against eucalyptus:
red gum sap, the tiny cut.
