hawai'i sonnet 14

NOT a contest entry. Here's a poem I drafted yesterday.


for pc

tell me again why the rain is wrong
for us to walk in, uncovered now

why your words curve waves around me
life preserver (render reality illusion)

tasting the rumor of the moon
we savor honesty tonight
hard
each taking in large bites –

the shadow slant (scent) of the pikake gardenia
the peacock (strut) of Wai'anae –

to bay the moon with heart
our deep sorrow
bones gone soft to break
under no more harsh blows
