“The Bosphorus” by Sarah Dickenson Snyder
Along the European edge, the bridges
in suspension—fishermen’s lines slanting
in the darkness until morning
opens restaurants on tops of buildings,
fabric billowing continental swells of scarves
& curtains & flags—all tiled walls in a domed
shadowy balance of sun.
Rumi’s clear water flowing
rippling to Asia.
