Secret Singer

June 21, Day after solstice, in a year of emergence of the eastern brood of periodic cicadas, also known as 17 year locusts

After five decades' hidden life
The secret singer rose,
Magically emerging into astonished life.

enter the city through the narrow gate

Taste and see
How sweet
Life may be

Bastard poet child
Sneaking into bed
After the harsh muse
Calls lights out,
Gather the crumbs from
Beneath the childrens' table.
