a late shower
1

after the downpour 

I went out

to stick my face in 

the garden –

inhaling and 

taking on a half stoned

look

like one of those

actors being paid scale 

to submerge theirs

in a towel 

just pulled

from the dryer
2

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

as

silk 

knotted

around some new

found jewel
