There are now more shoes 
in the closet than there are days to go 
out into the streets wearing them.


Amber ring at the bottom of a drawer. Trapped
in its cloudy eye, an afternoon by the River Moyka.

around the top of her right breast. On the screen, 
pictures of moons under the skin.


Crepe myrtles blasted from trees by wind.
Sidewalks stippled with fuchsia and white:
another summer slipping off its wrappers.
