capture a gesture.

petal & leafhood

ode to light’s lover

her leafness rotates upon
supple stalk miss chinatown

wave subtle her upturned
face follows arc of sun god’s

caress across heavens
make food not war, children

in photosynthesis finish
before workers sweep

away firecracker tailings
of moon merriment
