Petrified in rust from stardust,
Iโ€™m intaglioed, out of the cabochon sky
A twofold reflection โ€” faces schilling, through the atomic lattice
In Irish irises, I’m settling anew

Echo Muses 4.

The evanescent sparks

Pyrite in the night                                                                                                                                          

well spent on gin lips.            

Seductive as a lime-twist,

you feed my ego senselessly.

I dye my thoughts to fit your rapturousโ€”

indigo fizzle

fingers unbent


until your index touch

curls them into rhythm

crushing us back

in a swirl cloud

of crystal dust.

The comedown oblique as before

until in dreams,

I’ll usher in…

mining for your immersion.
