Beyond the Blue Door. Ravenna Neighborhood.

The Blue Door

sat seaward salt-spray
within the hot packed bar
opened to
the garden of   her
claret shoes   their
stranded rising and halo
frame-cover briar shawl of
fragment   hope chest full
in the small house of her
abandon            fresh from
salt water       poor farm
boy sailor         take  him
in fields
  and  chambers
slight in beat                new
rosary under her thumb pressed
hollow of his neck and shoulder
