Mending: Two Variations


 

Mending wall, Manuel,
do your fingers fantasize
being Claude Monet’s?

Exquisite rhythm—
Mirage Mender burnishing
shadows with sunlight.

Oasis


 

In this oasis
all mirages fall away—
bread and wine refresh.

What sinful pleasures
lurk behind the scarlet door?
Lift the latch and see!

Shadow Sweeper


 

Blindly determined
to keep herself from sin, she
grabbed her sturdy broom
and swept away the shadows
that leered at her like demons.

 
** ** **
 
Deep quagmires of sin
can be swept away, my dears,
with a sturdy broom.

Cloister


 

Ghosts of friars past
still stumble through the shadows
of the cloister walk.
