Stalk (Day 334)


here  so delicately 
breaking that bright green
tendril  the interloper  
stalks swagging thick  
swarming over branches left 
sweating in water-air  dribbling 
into depths of dromedary 
bliss  learn deeply 
to kiss this odd laughing 
fountain  look back like catfish 
after dark  learning that neither 
crickets nor fireflies glow 
here  so delicately
