The First of the Poems From European Trip

     Venice Vision

i capture a glimpse;
a snapshot of your crossing
the rialto bridge in september/
the shadow of you reversed
on the water;
the whisper of autumn
catching in your hair
like a frieze/

and venice,
the world's last stop
before a poem,
turns down the sheets;
you're gone
with the good light/
