AR #55 Cover
number 55

P O E T R Y
by Ellen Wehle

Honeymoon

Remote, godlike,
winging above
the thousand-eyed
ocean, we cross a night sky of gold--
ablaze at the world's
rim with a lava
glow. Champagne
overflows. Flight
attendants hover over
13F in her saffron
sari, eyes wide with panic;
no matter who fears
change, we will
not stop. Streaming
vapor past my window
the wizard jets
hiss This is your life,
pick the lock.
