(Sonnet for a) Chivalrous Knight Ashamed

This fountain must be sealed, as well you know.
Your heart will flood with what, blood-ripplingly,
can never be. Your drowning will be slow.
Go at once. Trickling in search of the sea,
moon-silvered fingers form pools ankle-deep.
You pulled a double rainbow from your sleeve:
a bit of luck. But words unuttered keep
you stuck. A fool in thrall, you fall, deceived.
Oh no—Oh Christ!—an iridescent Love
has come. Between the leaves, Her beauty snuck.
That madly flutter-sparking soul above
is yours. An emerald endlessness took
its husk. She was, is still, the summer’s long
enrapturing—the river’s looping song.

We stood resolute like Morrissey’s quiff."
