a late shower

a late shower

after the downpour 

I went out

to stick my face in 

the garden –

inhaling and 

taking on a half stoned


like one of those

actors being paid scale 

to submerge theirs

in a towel 

just pulled

from the dryer

she kept blush in a jar

& flushed for a flower

carried in

ruby faceted fingers

held to ricochet the

remainders of the sun

another days end drawn

and spun




around some new

found jewel
