Weird and Waning

Something is being masked
by something
by an abundance of commas
living in nature

her lips being stained
with the last line of
the first stanza

what this 'madonna'
may be experiencing
is described as "pale"


the methods of science
display a romance, a passion
of the crow that is suspicious
of birds


assimilation is a necessity of something far worse
glows and burns is natural to the metaphor
is the female footnote
outside of the conventions
of the psychology of wolves
dining on the thorns of portraits
and frames that grow through the night
that photosynthesize through ice


the rose bush grows thorns
unheard of evolution
upon a pedestal


this poem is sad
the poem is dreaming you in you
