Flame in Wind
Wish you had seen the sunset tonight.
It was the pallor of a burning ship
At sunset. I cannot get out of my mind
This photo: a little burning boat contained
In its flames on the water. There are three
Steps, not burning, beckoning Come down
From the harbor. The sunset was the color
Of burning sails at a most marvelous sunset
Near Venice. I have been waiting to write you
In this cataclysm. What you will do
When the brittle photo catches in your hand
Has been written. You will experience
The writing of your favorite re-read letter.
