Poem – VIVALDI IN LOVE (By John Biscello)

Vivaldi in Love (By John Biscello)



tender bud

raising gravity

in the center

of a palm.



drawn and quartered

shafts of light

mouthing the sea.



fetal leaves

curling in on themselves—


banking on faith.



hospitable conjoinment

of bare limbs

relishing arson

and lace.
