–after Emmanuel Hocquard

Samantha is
Samantha

Is my most beautiful, stolen poem
(Stolen the way storm-clouds steal
light – Who in the world
dark and stolen – Stand stones
in solemn circles
for the solstice-

stones from the god
of the drumbeat-

stones from the god
of the virgins)

What is most beautiful is stolen
Samantha is Samantha
