Midnight solace

Sharp, darting light

Crisp, glaring bright

Angles, bounces

Arcs, refracts

Continues

Outward, curling sounds

Inward, crushing mounds

Heft not ounces

Loads, retracts

Ingénues

Those orbs, no sight

These limbs, less might

Silence trounces

Counteracts

Changing hues

Often, trying rebounds

Never, crying resounds

Drivel flounces

Meaning backs

Rendezvous

Pear-shaped drop

Mental fire stop

Wordless sigh

Breathless cry

Ah, redux

For Michelle (Iran-joon), my wife, for whose love and affectation I strive always as if this is the solstice of my life, on her birthday, 8 May 2006.  Love always, Matteo (Fulton).
