Indian Summer
Kabir Bakie, Clouds Blue Sky, July 2004
Wanderer moon
smiling a
faintly ironical smile
at this
brilliant, dew-moistened
summer morning,—
a detached
sleepily indifferent
smile, a
wanderer’s smile,—
if I should
buy a shirt
your color and
put on a necktie
sky blue
where would they carry me?
