It's just poetry, it won't bite

Everywhere at once, aimless

Simon Perchik’s most recent poem to appear here was “You can’t stop, talk” (September 2018).

Everywhere at once, aimless
though the day lilies
no longer make a sound

are used to how the sun
can still be found in moonlight
that has no rain left to comfort

with warm stones and the mist
that is now your heart
is circling night over night

as some giant red cloud
listening for the scent
from when a flower held your hand

too long and the calm
that has its fragrance :your echo
faint from waving goodbye.
