Posthumous Poem


             

Tiny foam pyramids

trumpeting


at the end

of branches:


the Japanese lilac

above us


settles its shape

inside you.


This is how life is:

when you turn


to face me, love,

don’t both sets


of leaves still go

buzzing along?


Okay, good. I think

we can go home now.
