She wiped the rheum from the daybreak’s edge

the dyslexia of lights and leaves,

interplaying of sunrise waxing erratic /


Her manic Morse code shifts the wind,

the pendant falls outside the blouse of dawn /


She buries her head in the ample breasts /

the ametrine of sky /


She cracks, iridescent /

a daybreak, a prism of quartz

and girl / and glass /
