Act by Athena Kildegaard

Act

Athena Kildegaard


As if the acoustics were perfect

as if sails luffing, the sound of, attracted porpoises

as if always shells plumbed dew, mercury depended on coffee, sieves held icicles

as if we two, we three, we four, and on until eternity

as if puddles, cucumbers, orchids

and as if the hermit thrush meant to spend the morning

as if love, as if love, as if love

and the semaphores of dandelions could save us.
