The Appetite of Calm

by ddavidd   Mar 22, 2023

Your smile,
the white queue of musical tone,
the jaws of piano,
the bitten apple of the moon,
and the appetite
of silence!

The bow of the wind
the violin of the river!

The teethed moon,
the hammock of crescent
between two
twilight poles!

The drunken dark river,
the zest of the vines,
the moon stretching on the waves,
the wine of musical harmony!

The white throne of jasmines
and the dark locks of the night,
the fragrance of whiteness
hovering above
and wavering on
the riverbed
of the pitch-black hair
of night!
