Bewilderhof – 23

Chapter 23
– a tune introduced

los desaparecidos
in Jupiters jitney

long ago June on a
morning came

to lend her light to
opiate phalanx

poppies spread out
before the porch, a day

when a boy,
enveloped in visions

escaped twisted tirade
leaned into vapor

like a maestro in rapture
as an opus played

he on the step rocking
she a ray shining and

as pollen she dusted
his shoulders

as pollen
she dusted his hair

lifting the weight
with a thousand voices

and upon leaving, to the boy

a promise whispered

a melody not heard
before that day
