by this poet

February on another coast is April
here. Astrology is months: 
you are February, or are you 
June, and who is 
December? Who is books 
read in spring, wingspan 
between midnight 
and mourning
Another starry tree, coastal 
counterpoint where magnolia is 
a brighter season
peach and pear
are grafted onto the same
