20 June: A contrapuntal poem

poppy field by Claude Money

In This Moment

a breeze tempers
the heat pulsing off brick

poppy petals
paper thin – disengage

flutter
fall
and fail in the heat

a bumblebee’s last
chance before hot rain
thunders down

Spain arrives
on the wind and fills
the open windows
