Aziz Dixon; Visitor


You are

the serenade I was composing

when you woke me


the sunlight seen from below

in the trout stream, before the pike came


the ghost of a meteor, desert

dust-bowl a mile wide;

dust-tears trickle

from the rim.


You could be

a moon crater for all that I can

reach you now, but

one day

I will be with you again.
