Five Cantos From The Prayer Book of Aphrodite
by Sandra Kasturi

Love is a black beetle,
chitinous, serrated,
many segmented and complex.

Love is the soft ear
of a wild cherry flower,
a Japanese pen and ink.

Love is a strange sea bird
fractious in its cries
as it flies in land.

Love is a chambered nautilus shell
thrown into startled hands
by a devilish sea.

Love is a fickle moon’s round reflection
caught in a sieve
by the fishers of memory.
