Month 6:2 “Post-Op Dream with Coda”

POST-OP  DREAM  with  CODA

here, countless rooms
of old houses
once mine, endless
hallways and wings
I seek
the least of the least
alcove

here a tiled wall
blue glaze of sails
and windmills …Dutch
Netherlands
fresh towels shawling
a silver rod

here a closet for lamps
cubbies
shades upon shades (bulbs)
upon bulbs)
a cord to save enough
of light

here a gas kitchen
stainless
a pie on a bone-white counter
spotless
glossy colonies of blue
berries

there, a window

out there, a rock garden
early spring clump
oh!
of wild chicory
and over there, stones
on which
old wasps falter

petal by petal
the yellow jackets moult
into golden-veined birds
they cannot fly

All chambers unfurled.

CODA
I peel away
three mini
skin patches
blue
for tracing
heartbeats.
