At the [end] of the pier

there is nothing.

It cuts off sharp
ly to yield to
an endlessly deep well of water
and an endlessly expansive shock of sky.

Today, this opus framed,

ringed round by sculptured,

candy-yellow clouds
held to earth by our thin chains

of smoke.
They are curling

and twisting their way
up from countless matches

{discarded in disgust}
now congregated about

the –unholy–

pair in the picture.

They sit on the ground, and

lean on each other.
