December 33

Jami Proctor-Xu

         —After Liu Manliu

a white swift flies to a woman in a lake of leaves
hanging mid-sky     winter memory of harvest moon
golden glow of hair interwoven with cloud-strands
       she dreams leaves upward
            autumn not falling
a soul multiple enough to hold anything
