brio day

 

 diebenkorn day brio

brio mornings are sun steamed rooftops
infused coffee burn-ed toast-ed dash
encumbrance-ed in numb thaw rash
of blur into a crisp of cold

brio afternoons are a cricket chirping
in a bamboo cage on a sill while papers
rustle bustle on a desk and words are
brittle sliced

brio evenings are shadow harmonies
struck fragrant on green musked lawn
of fresh cut grass and damp warm-ed
earth-ed heliotrope and closing dandelions

and brio nights…and brio nights… are
crushed vermillion velvet careless bed-ed
sparkled tiger eyes watching in the room
