All Good by Maureen N. McLane

All Good

a “beautiful day”
nothing happened
and nothing was going to happen
the wind shook leaves
that did not fall
the moored boat did not sail
& the rain fell
on casual grass
everything was full
including the empty glass  

*

a “beautiful rose”
no sign of a woman
but a boy’s succulent anus
in a Persian lyric
call it ranunculus
or camellia
are they not more enfolded
than the folded rose
whose folds your nose
now probes  

*

the mountain’s
promiscuous
any cloud can take him
any sun have him
it’s all good
today’s assent
and tomorrow’s
