Rumor

Musk that soil gives off after rain,
first petrichor of approaching spring:
what message is written in the loam,
in the clustered weeds poised to send
tiny emissaries on the wind: death?
increase? In the window’s embrasure
I pause to widen the in-between,
increased in the window’s embrasure.
Tiny emissaries on the wind, death
in the clustered weeds poised to send
what message is written in the loam.
First petrichor of approaching spring,
musk that soil gives off after rain.

 

In response to Via Negativa: Rain Date.
