diary of the Morphos

 

i.

pale lemon yellow

pressing insistently through layers of transluscent netting

 

gaunt orange halo

 

sulfurous mounds glowing,

a milky adagio

 

BLACK EYE

white pupil

luminous orb

recede

 

eclipse,

fade

 

lettuce edged whispers

 

CLOSER

pulsing

blue-rimmed and vibrating

 

lunar maria beckon like google maps

 

fiery corona

 

cobalt halo 

between black amd white

 

(hallucinated angels

at the split second 

of a knife’s curve

 

mushrooming over the bay winds

pull slk taught around your legs;

bony femurs

 

the orphic glass is obsidian in motion.

 

s  l  o  w        a  r  i  a  s

pale wists of cirrus flee

at nauseating velocity

ii.

sheet of rippling sapphire

serene tonight

 

no gaunt loomers

no gathering haunts

 

just crushed sapphire;

dusty, fluid dunes.

 

see it fade. see it hang.

 

moonlight whistling

through my hollow bones

 

(eels of breath 

& i a flute).

lightbugs bustlling

the horizon bobs, flickers.

 

a gray town.

a blue boat.

white flecks whirling. pleiades.

delicate apparitions.

strange blackness, dimensional and in motion.

toward you infinities.

cirrus, mild and distant.

a welcome etherality.

black sapphire dust;

residue of jewels
