.....on the sundial of your life.
Robert Desnos: To the Mysterious Woman
A late
afternoon
point of
co-
incidence

this bench
in the
Botanical Gardens
shared
with Desnos
& Diogenes

neither there
when I arrived

but putting
a wide-
trunked tree
between me
& the sun

& moving
as its shadow
tracks the time

I recall
           the one
& refute
           the other.
