Sonnet 2

Down along the shore waves reach
and touch the black volcanic rocks, splashing,
let into places a body isn’t. Hung low,
stars waltz the entire zodiac in weightless
atmosphere, paired off into celestially
perfect couples. Flower have all been given
women’s names—in your mouth is the sway,
back and forth, of bamboo reeds. At the reef
of your collarbone is the dark pulse of rain.
