O, vapor poised like fingers on the lip of the glass. O, atmospheric voice, an exhale
bluing the mountains. Wildflowers, too, in chorus. O, starry mouths of harebell. O, chiming-bells
crooning their secrets to the bees: See how I can change for you, most beloved when I blue.
The enduring romance of stones lichened, likened to the body of a lover. O, what love wants
to make of us. One cloud heavying into a storm. Each droplet, a digit pressed to the earth, playing on.
