a coolness of fresh water


I am taking the pale cheek out,
not for effect, I am searching for rays.
a skin swelled.

the sun is burning
with the heat,
is threatening with bubbles.

around green.
the sun is already squeezing tears.
on eyes I put leaves.

coolness of fresh water,
is restoring the will to live.
heat is teasing.

    At first I said, Oh, she is an artist, then thought better of it. Whatever this is about it does resonate in one's thoughts.
