chameleon












mercurial enchantment
cast in the stones thrown in the valley of loss and sorrow's lament
bleeding out
in the gamma ray'd awareness
of my need
rimmed in gold leaf and 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
commit no crime
write no words
that linger on a tongue slick with the tears of forgiveness
tattered and bruised
we heal to monarch
into the diamond
light
of
the
stars
