Poem 258 – Inside Patchouli

Inside patchouli

Autumn mornings in concert with crickets
cicadas

witnessing the sun’s forehead nuzzle dawn into day

the accepted repetition of arriving

the achievement of such repetition

the musk of knowing & choosing

the light –

the illumination of being a thing fully

this oil of my youth
lingers on sweater sleeves
lifts me like his kiss can
