Ode to Lorca

Lorca you can do anything
with a star
with a shadow

shrink a star to words
that dream they’re stars
that flower inside me

make my shadow sing
itself to sleep
to wake as sun

quicker than mind you fly
across these lines
across everything

landing beside me now
in your white suit
of wind

rest now
rest beside me
as you never rested

then ride your lemon light
into another
starwashed night
