Of All Places

Some things were not fully explained
lemon shark buried and unburied
by successive tides
fashions like dressing for luck
a handkerchief folded so pale flames burned
in a breast pocket
or a silk comet slipped through the atmosphere
to fall there of all places
softly without harming the wearer
or not fire after all
but cut paper a child’s drawing of the happy
shapes of sunrise
material and spirit being the same thing
at different speeds and sizes
