Fierce, startling eyes dance impromptu
overtures. Soft, rounded edges that curve disconsolately,
realizing the cornered nature of this sickly hibiscus
blossom. Stalked, with clouded leopard markings
in a shadowed green background.
Doe-footed worries streak, beige and unseen, crackling
deciduous twigs upon my forest floor,
entering unnoticed, wondering at my owned doomed
And beneath this twisting corkscrew motion,
(note the recurving pendulum slide)
desire crackles with red static lightning.
Scythe-eyes, a deep and wondering tawny-brown
chase now these
antlered phantasms, across the vast distances. Away from its
reclusive Myanmar leaves, steam and colored flowers
entering the deer-home in the secrets of Appalachia.
Dreaming in deep colors, I ache, am inspired.
