I Have All The Agnes Varda Films But Still I Weep (anag. fragments) 

New wave gun 
empties under pear tree.
Rare and fleeting
in steaming sand she
gleans and rests,
simple as best light.
R.I.P. Dame.  
Raid Havana. Alter dreams.  
Reap flight. 

New wave gun 
raids Havana, swelters in the
seaside mall,
sips blue tides. 
She reaps dew under the sun. 

New wave gun 
eats veal under vines in the sun. 

White petals fall in the water.
