In the Spirit of St Valentine




AFTER SAPPHO

Eros the loosener of limbs troubles me


Eros shook my mind like a mountain wind
falling on green shoots
                                not oaks of antiquity
        but wild bamboo
        taken 
root by railroad tracks
their sound awakening me 
to the slow arrow
