The cushion lies
with altogether a more subtle glow
and presses down upon the chair.

The chessmen stand
in broken, mobile row,
the camel knights with sharpened teeth
wait there.

The air bounces on the crickets,
the clouds are splashed by sea on sky.
Quiet, green-consuming thickets
shade scars by things that fly
and die.
