POEM: "After Eurydice"

After Eurydice

It’s no white tiger
to come back
the white tiger is
painted white
to come back
white as paper
white as Sunday
and white as
the snow that falls
on the blue tigers
to come back
near the blue
and behind them
the red flowers
to come back
keening for the sun

the sun is water
the sun is black
to come back
you who work
in the dream world
listen to me.
