you stare at her
magnifying a locked reality

talents in a persistent nightshade
finger-stringed infinity
parallel wavelengths
that nullified eros
in abstract violence

elliptical waltz with the inorganic
wearing those curvy arctic fireworks
her mind is pretty
alienated from
"the eye of the beholder"

you stare at her
beyond her expanding pupil
dwell (perhaps) the last prayers
of a dying star
