An Early Communion
I hear a toy trombone
playing a high note
and I desire
to slide
until it goes higher.

The scarlet robed blade of grass
enveloped by a black eclipse
of disproportionate love


The trombone leads
to a melodic climax
deceiving the orchestra
into a premature one

Breathe in,
Communion with the sun
or shattered bulb,
Breathe out
