Loomings iii


     The keel of the moon
     breaks purple clouds
     and the quivers
     fill with dew.

     Ah, but like love
     the archers

     are blind!

     The border fetish is of a
     piece with climate change
     denial. Who'd have guess-
     ed the cistern where they
     quiver is a wall of lies?
