Burka Sunset

The river removed its burka at sunset
A wince of wind
What use is secrecy in this wilderness
invisible only to itself?

 

 

Note on the Collaboration

“Burka Sunset” was jointly written in a reciprocal “chain poem” process (each co-author alternating two lines until a draft was accreted), while one co-author traveled throughout three continents and the other lived in the US.
