Ustaphors

The clouds across which two young lovers fly.
The ancient mistakes historians cite.
A bird whose song echoes through distant friends,
or rather the echoes, lost in the night.

The fields upon which two young lovers lie.
The recent mistakes the newspapers cite.
A cat whose shadows climb a crooked fence,
or rather the shadows, lost in the night.

The shoulders on which two young lovers cry.
The frequent mistakes mothers like to cite.
A tree whose branches creak like lovers’ beds,
or rather the lovers, lost in the night.
