Kaitlyn Poon



The sun slips on her black veil for the occasion,
total occlusion, save for the O
of the silver nimbus
wedding the day to darkness.

The leaves shatter on the pavement
into a million moons.
They glare like coffee rings or the dilated eyes of cats
and lift as the sun strips off her clothes.
