Paris in Chagall by Neil Richards

in Poetry/Spotlight

Below his window the Seine is a prayer unscrolling.

The moon sleeps contentedly in Chagall’s belly

until dusk is a greening field.

Then Chagall plants himself into dusk.

He is the fruiting body of the moon,

and when the moon is fully grown

Chagall is the mirror where she makes up her face.
