Shadow of skeletal chlorophyll
Shading luminescent concrete
Glowing with liquid lunar light.
What force, what motive fixes this spell?
Majestic palm frond, or discrete
Shade haunting this bright hallowed night?
Eastern breeze has been buried by darkness:
No wind, no sound this wee a.m., no smell
Disputing the aroma of brightness
Wafting uneasily into the well
Of oblivious nocturnal blackness.
crossing the river Styx requires a toll –
from those with nothing left to sell . . . .
Shadow of a camel-backed rope puller:
do not ask for whom . . . .
it is We
Double helix in a descending gyre:
I glimpse the silhouette of a lost loon
Crossing the face of the moon, and cursing
The mirroring pool of reflected soon beams.
