A Night In July (Love Poem)

Rating: 3.7

Alone with one lamp
I bite into the red pearl of a nectarine.
It’s been a year of lay-offs, impulsive
travels, and birth
of a daughter. I work
here all night in the garage
full of books, all night
with one lamp, with spiders
and moths, their sudden
unacknowledged deaths,

their births that are always hidden.

Everything I want to know: I sense the avocadoes ripening and the ring lines/ growing inside the tree my notebooks with wire spirals coming undone - I picture the little girl inside and the father outside amidst unacknowledged deaths and hidden births and words/medleys.
