SPICA

 

 

Habitat of obdurate melancholy,

the center lands of

 

minute consequence, rank

phenomenology begets

 

cryptozoology,starfall

a sheaf.

 

A matter of elephantine

significance lumbers

 

through the flax, its huge

knees, tedious effluvium:

 

the egg-timer of the sky

ripostes: purple flashes

 

in the middle places,

invigored motes goad

 

the flapping field:

the rocks are alive

 

Do you hear me?

 

the rocks are alive.
