ASTERS FOR AEGOR


discordant I

on the morning you texted


shut my kitchen door on the baby’s wails

two steps and I’m garden, I’m maiden

with a basket for a

lonely prince I love / a purpose

that makes me fairylike, nipping


the rightherbs / the rightflowers I bird my fingersthrough

purple fragrances

sewing the magics together, all I know how,


just a sprig

these stars for you.
