All That Glitters

Kathleen Serocki

in Nice an entirely different sun
more photons perhaps
more lumens per ray
an ethereal lighting
blazes through wide boulevards
glosses leaf tips
liquidy narcissus yellow

the giant heliotrope slowly turns its head
flashy waxed yellow peppers orange
carrot candelabras light
up the vegetable stalled sidewalks
splayed octopi tinsel
draped quicksilvery fish shimmer

fanned out before the sea
blue sheened
the seaport lizard basks
primps in fancy perfumes sardine
lavender thyme saffron salt air
a gold leaf baguette breezes by

in Nice morning sun bursts
through wooden shuttered eyes of the city
gilded clocks shine more gold
youth is more young
age more unforgivably old
late afternoon sultry peach mimosa faces
cast their own musty light
by night Nice languishes in seed pearls
stranded moon fleck over the bay
