First and Last Things

     Smiles faint
          as watermarks

     Tears coy
          as morning dew,

    Threshold leaves

                                      vigilant life
                                  with green blades
                                pricking floorboards.

                      Austere skin pales wanting
                           warmth's velvet kiss

                          to drive

short grass thirsts for light
          to accite dew

         As day shouts
  from more mouths than
