Ephemera By M. Stone

Venus sinks in the west:

citrine snagged on twine

as it follows the sun.


Green glass insulators

separating long-dead wires

on the old telephone pole


catch day’s last light,

and a crow hovers,

covetous of the gleam


while a planet mistaken

for a star slips from sight.
