Books: Watching Wisteria, The submerged fern in the waistline of solitude
Waves raise their white crests,
Has a horror, Odysseus' boat.
Kingfishers flutter inland, gaze
At their blue shadows.
For Neptune's storm orders
If I go towards kingfishers.
When awake, Circe, you'll see only
The footsteps on the moist beach sand
Of one who ran away from roses and coral.
