may twelfth

     wafting toes
limber to the bright
              yellow spread beneath

      a tray of mountain rhine
                   and three stemmed glasses
      on this day we have made
              off with laid out longwise

fully taken over by some
       gracious sway of relief
                   to counter the numbing
      roar of the race—thanks be
                   to Sun and the 4:30 Express

              Jay who made this one
              we got away with
