The Book of Difficult Fruit

loropetalum
against the beat of light
she stands 
trooper tall

a thrumming ladder 
for the prisms inside
the book
of difficult fruit

my eye let fall
these sachets of glitter
pain refracted 
a purple glow
such gentle edges

see how she stands 
to bruise / to bleed

the beat of light
plum gorgeous
