away from orbit

away from orbit

waiting for a touch
a taste
for the world
to bow at the waist
am I to
be
one
strung
together
with sinew
of the sorrow-
est note
away
from
orbit
now
gathering indiscretion
like a peasant
gathers saffron
fingertips
the color
of monks-robe
in this way
a display
a
guiltmark unique
