chameleon











mercurial enchantment
cast in the stones thrown in the valley of loss & sorrow's lament
bleeding out
in the gamma ray'd awareness
of my need
my need ...
rimmed in gold leaf & amethyst cooling
focus weaves a wicked spell
borne upon a hummingbird's back
into the diamond
curve
of
the
sun

today,
i am love's jester rising
blown between worlds of leather and black cake
buckled & feathered
to committ no crime, write no words
that linger on tongue's slick with the tears of forgiveness
tattered & bruised
we heal to monarch
into the diamond
light
of
the
stars
