From Mattress Makers by Sasenarine Persaud, forthcoming from Mawenzi House.

Sun dances through clear-glass door
flagged by palm fronds waving
webbed arms to bladed banana
Leaf-shadows lounging on fence—
a morning thief dropping red petals
on clipped lawn Indian orchid hearts
rolling wind circumambulating
my south and yours warm jamun
leaves gyrating on weathered paling
