Skies like freshly-pealed orange halves
A precious and pulpy atmosphere like a sun-bleached birthday
The flat-flat horizon with oblique shadow-showers in the hazy distance
As a raindrop cracks the glass gladly
Endless blue: water speared by luminous scales of fish blue;
shoreline women stating fashion, blue silk against brown skin;
and the wiry blue line on the fishing reel: long-sleeve, thin
white shirt, rod held swaying over water on a cobalt night.
