In Waves       
     ~after Eleni Sikelianos

A red longing feathers my arms

“Sunset” by Felix Valloton

when I hear the word sunset,

not sunset but sculling:
to drown the day’s wounds

I drop the oars down and hear

a loon

I feel the song pull away

from my heart

to hide under the wings

of a ghost

in moon’s crisp light –

the notes casting a supple shadow.
