Abelias

By John I. Blair

curiously architectural branches
curve across windows
like vaulting groins
in french cathedrals
excepting they support
foliage and flowers

sweet white flowers
aromatic of honey
irresistable to moths
swallow tailed butterflies
black-chinned hummingbirds
and green lizards

lizards who feast
on flower customers
and in turn
provide tasty snacks
for passing crows
vulgar drab fellows

on whom references
to french cathedrals
go entirely wasted

2004 john i. blair
