The Moon Comes Quickly

This is a chair.
It is oak, and the joints are loose —
they pop. But the stain is pristine.

And this is a chair:
snow and cherry,
they fall — these blossoms.

And this is a chair —
the spillway hums
in the windbreak.

This is a table —
cherry and three
pheasant smudge the rise.

And this is a table:
dry shoes curl
on the landing.

And this is a plate —
the moon comes quickly
before sunset,

before the table,
before the chair.
