Dress Rehearsal: Phoenix Song II (haiku braid)

I Name as Invocation

shapeshifter; dappled
daughter of ash, luminous
sister of fire; story-

stalker, wordtwirler
tumbling from a nightshade sky:
star-hearted poet

II Name as Promise

unpaid bills,coffee
cups, appointments, flat tires...
at the grocery

choice of vegetables
for a cheap month's-end supper:
voluptous bell

peppers glow like lamps;
bloodveined curly chard, white carrots -
ordinary grace
