mars o'clock


Stealing beside me as an ochre whisper
phantom presence
a whisper
classically soft
slowly
erasing all negative space
blooming darkness
and
the quiet burn of a million stars 

"Make a strong line, don't sketch it out - be confident when you draw"

you told me once upon a time 

"Be sure"

Drawn then--
sure

held strong
with a kiss with the 
weight 
and
spin 
of this blue rock
exquisitely containing the 1939 World's Fair,
the soundtrack to Fantasia
and
The Partridge Family
calliope hummingbirds land on our tongues
flying into our stained-glass souls
as the 2:17 rolls thru town
A kiss ....
stealing all measure of hurt & rumpled sorrow
pheasant feathers and words weaved into
patchwork succulence
skin is diffused, forgiven--effervescent 
almost
inconsequential to the heart of the matter
bloom
hold
draw sure 
and
linger into this slumbered 
ghost kiss
