Summer

                                                                             viridian click-beetle
								stepping on slivered gelatin
										 cleans its jewelled
										               cartouche 


					bounce  of  interrupted  dog
										
			all  tongue  all  tail 
								signature  of  river  swim
							
						splinters  his   mud  drIps


hummingbird hawkmoth
	equinoctial 
		will-o’-the-wisp
flirts with cabbage thistle


							middle-distance
							three octave flight
							ripples a telegram
							of goldfinch
