Prettyboy Reservoir

The reservoir lies behind a screen of dark trees and leaves,

As though hiding behind a Moroccan screen.

Her polished surface holds the turquoise blue and pink

Of summer’s sunset, reflecting the sky’s blushes like

A handmaid’s mirror. The air smells of moss, ferns,

And trees. In the sky hangs the protracted vibrato

Of crickets and katydids and the whoosh of batwing.
