Offering


Fluff white towels and place a wash cloth
by the sink. Snap a white sheet

and smooth its corners into small gifts.
Cover it with a white spread and fold

over its hem. Plump white pillows
and place them beneath his head.

In the chipped cup set pyracantha
in praise of him. Beware lest he pricks

his finger which will bleed like the huge red ball
you will pull down from the sky

until it sinks out of sight until it is a line
behind a blue-hulled boat drifting beneath a cloud.
