A Poem for Gerwine


Gold upon gold,
half hidden upon the burning aisle of earth.
Sickle points raised heaven-ward,
where mountains belch from the grass
of spontaneous repasts...

Gold, subtle and cream, posted
for the illumination of half-days,
when the moiety of stolen glare visits
the eye of the world.

O' Gold, shine on!
You increase my pulse with that gleam,
so breathtaking like the birth of a mirror.
Sickle of gold, pierce this gloom of distress NOW!
Fall into my palms silently like Gerwine's lone trinket.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
