bow down / bough down published york literary review

bow down

a harrowed tree
tangled leaf
Its bough down
bow down—
 (still, it flowers)
Submarine blue is
where dawn occurs
  (South/South-east of here)
Dawn’s lightbox runs
from north blue
to south warm
The point between
is lit-not-lit
  (nor) seamed
 a bas-relief.
