The Cameo I Have Hidden In My Heart
the cameo I have hidden in my heart
profiles the wind
the wind and the ivory moon
the ivory moon that does not change
and the word fallen into snowdrifts.
the kingdom I have hidden in my
pocket keepsake language:
old rose-gardens tended by the few
who garnered beauty and were not
ashamed of it.
I will fasten my Soul with
a brooch of burgundy and fire
of pearl and the unwavering.
they were noble.
don't you remember?
