Layering the Space


Summer samples all the greens in the wheel—
forest for grass, lime for new leaves, moss
green slicked over trees. Tea- green rain
slants through a wet sky and clouds huddle
around hills colored fern, pine, shamrock.

A praying mantis, camouflage-green thighs
thrumming against a spear of hunter green.
Green-winged teal paddling in circles
in the pond.
