Wild Marble 2005

      Wild Marble 

I

     Staying on for a third year,
canary squares of wild marble
coming together, a butterfly,
the mimosa trembling

an even paler guest, in love
with a paradigm, japonica
returning in awe a ninth time
bent to clip a fresh
     honeysuckle cigarette.

     Who would, ringing the bell
start a coral cycle
of mermaid chess, drifting oxygen
     gifting an underwater guess?

     A commotion rang
to a mandarin request

before the striking of a gong
was heard: a footfall

withdrew to silence, caffeine
     and winter lime.

     Angels danced an era
and the night away on a pin:
it became easier to evolve
an optical paradox, lines
on oriental paper by a lake,
rib a silver moon, scheme
at being more than a sprinkler
of Parmesan cheese, garlic
before the avocado renegade
on pomegranate, crucial
     nymph salmon at six.

II

     A spirit may turn, halt and watch,
explore the flicker alcove to shadow
lives on a wall, ache for water
     before a campanile frenzy.

     Rowing a salver of infinity
in a past sea, opening a future
the game went on for a difficult year,
drew a probing guest, a new self
to wear out nine miles in a year

circling a cue, a billiard clue
or three to walking as one alone
questing in a sunny colonnade
haunting a parched light of dusk
for meaning larger than light,

higher than the lingering curves
on a white statue, a spiral fountain,
beauty finer than a memory weaves,
or a girl smiling in Modena, wistful
     for the touch in a Botticelli.

     We entered our island maze,
out of the guarded summer atrium
parallel to a water terrace
and saw, turning firmly left
by the maroon Hotel Carrara

over a loggia of garden vertigo
the utter realities' mirror
for the grooved marble regions
with flowering flames underfoot,
breathing hard now, joining
     the lost meeting she found.
