Black nylon socks
rolled and stuffed into pairs
like roses without their stems

inside the suitcase’s silvery gray
which looks like a photograph
taken in black and white,

in the tones
of summer moonlight:
gardenias ghostly gray,

the pink hibiscus white,
the sound of sprinklers panting
like a person running away;

and underwear, white as moths
drawn blindly towards the light.
