Blue Garden and Rain

Lovers in the Rain is a toxic blue
garden filled with berries, and eating them
occurs throughout the fantasy
of the lovers going in and out of phase
inside it. It exhausts them--blue recursive
rain going in and out of phase and their own
instinctive motion to arrange themselves
on its surface. By now you are so thin,
there's a phosphorus-blue isotope
quivering like a sea inside you. Touch it.
