and so, a vineyard
Andrew K. Peterson

Brighton Nights
For Joanne Kyger

my mother is a screaming beatles girl
aunt gail’s for the rougher stones
cedar    eucalyptus
                soy     wax     amber
& cold toned clovers, crimson 
and still i go    still getting down to
the thirties overnight     better
throw another blanket on       thin
city tree keeps hinting at a renaissance
sunflower rosemary beeswax to my lips
