ASTERS FOR AEGOR
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
sewing the magics together, all I know how,
just a sprig
these stars for you.
