Ekphrasis

 

1.

 

Create for me
a river

made of stone
so that I may look nothing

like you.

 

2.

 

One thousand moons.

Rutabagas at slumber.

Soft birds.

Each of these
have something in common:

They look nothing like you.

 

3.

 

A girl runs
through an orchard

like a fish,

all white and scale.
The gown

like sea grove.

Midnight is inverted,
all red and cornflower.

They look nothing like you.

Different skies.
