here is the peeling slat
and the corded wood

here is the clothesline
and the weeded plot

here is the thorn-wrapped stem
that wraps itself around the camellias

here is the seat of rocks
grown over by slippery moss

here is the hinged gate leading
to the other side of the pasture

here is the water that comes
to its other life through the gutter

here is the otherworldly moon
peering into that container


In response to Via Negativa: Tableaux.
