Chasing Emily

just before sundown

gold sears the gray of the day

brightness from within



as truth tumbles off

a slanting roof into arms

naught nuptial, it sighs 



wedded words dashing

through wild nights’ imagined lusts

envelopes embrace



that slanted light she

wrote of falls in fall across

one housecat’s path home



dawn’s dewtops beckon

garden to meadow to field

pencil left behind
