  • Conjunction
  • Anna Maria Hong (bio)

In the romance of the confluence, twoplanets appear to touch, bounty and rebirth,supplanted generation—it is easy toforget from a water-ribboned berth—no harvest without dissolution—the undeadelder banished to the outer reachof consolation, to eight hundredyears of passage through the cold blank breach.

  A pair flares         —the slow, distant pater        with his glittering belt of ice-nocked rings,        the son with his boiling ocean, his furious        red eye,       (a new age sings)  as the revolving rock returns winding    his wind-borne scythe. [End Page 293]
