Rue

i got the virgin squints
in the rue garden
in beaconsfield
eating w/ strangers
and dear friends
the newly pregnant
clamber over each other
away over the grass
we blotch w/ pleasure
keeping our capillaries
trim & laughing
painters of bluish-green
& greenish-yellow
light, for friendship
& grace of evening seen
clear in the herb patch
