Naked, Shaded in Gradated Greens


Naked, shaded in gradated greens –
unforeseen – a couple now convenes,
it seems, less for a conversation
than for unknown oddness: the relation

they appear to occupy to us
relies more on some strangely luminous
intention to distract with their insistent hue
than to communicate with me or you

through some syntactical vocabulary.
We therefore do not hold a very
sanguine feeling towards them, nor
can we imagine what their psychic torpor

or their rampant verdure signifies.
What is being offered to our eyes?
Something strange in all the glowing
signals some new way of knowing.
