Chiaroscuro ii

Chiaroscuro ii

It started the way it does,
as it happens, 
without my seeing.
 
Was it the scarlet flame
of the blueberry that
singed these optics
wide enough to
sense the
bearing?
 
Did the oak corpses 
strewn, prostrated,
mouthing their oms 
ply my drums with 
their sotto drone?
 
Or was the shaft
slung from The Orb
piercing long shadows 
the bit that’s jolted 
the track from 
pause to 
play
 
to play
 
to play
 
amidst 
the falling 
down
 
refractions of
the dark daring
the traveler to
follow their 
trace
 
zag by 
zag yielding, 
the stir of emergence
tween the twin 
blades of 
shoulder
a kind of 
distracting
magic
 
secreted 
the while
in this den
of mystery’s
glinting 
talons 
 
talisman
to thinking,
hazarding,  
too far 
ahead
 
a totem
to poise
in flow.
 
To play
even when
all appears 
adrift, askew,
lost to a dream 
of former 
likeness. 
 
A silver beam
cast in a pool made
solid by a trick 
of lens 
 
flashing
flashing.
 
Circle upon
circle catching
the afternoon
in its pelt.
 
What was
is not, for what
is is all
 
now.
 
Smell the fragrance
of this death in the
bloomed tangle, 
the swallowed
rains of mind: 
sweet.
 
For it bakes
something
in its fist.
 
Its song.
Its belly.
 
Something new.
Something that
rises after
resting.
 
Something that
has never 
tasted
of this
before.
 
Like yellow.
Like sky.
Like rose brier
and wilt.
 
The stink bug
knows this. The 
lady beetle, too.
White pines
watch, 
 
watch.
 
Aware
of what’s
taking place
right before
our eyes.
