June 12 1975


Midpoint of our years
Summer Solstice nears
Mothers giving birth
Sanctifying earth.


Dawn and Dusk converge
In the sun’s ovoidal path.
Opium days
Like poppy buds engorged,
Violet velvet vulvae
Swell, slit, split, splash out
Orange-red radiance
Petals, pistils, stamens
Fingers, toes.
