Downtowns black & white corduroy trolley lights
bursting fourth of ramparts essence
lit up the evening rip tide sky;
burgundy in memory,
brooding in depth.
illuminating a grey rippled cloud,
collected in a coin purse party nose powder pause,
shaped from symmetrical symmetry laboratory glass bell cages;
a letter “E” seagull.
faded in the dawning distance
from the country highway qualm
reminded of a royal purple lavished love
you instilled in me
from a private window sill
nestled in the view
of a foggy mountain forest in Japan.
