Stefanie Bennett

LATITUDE    

Santa Rosa was the favoured haunt
In early fall.
My Aunt, grey eyes

Flashing like moon arrows
Sought out
Humming bird and quail – her

Dilapidated camera
Balancing on
Bedrock mortar – the snapshots

Surely a breath
Of yesteryear
Unchanged,

Post-holding postscripts
Coachella bound
And pending.

Later… we drank
The water-flask dry.
A toast

To twin-horned Toro’s spires.
The way it’s done.
Operable. Received.
