Light: NaPoWriMo Day Ten

When light sticks inside bodies

The viscous imaginary

A protective sheath, a plastic coating, a waterfall


Orbital schema – an awkward grinding

Grey over buoyant grey, a rainbow scrape


When light sticks inside bodies

Bug jelly maths

Porifera make new hydras

Give Zeus the finger

A parthenogenetic hum

stuns the ocean floor


Leaves shoot duodenal refuse

A vein of cellular debris

But, to chop it –

A clutch of pearls through the stained glass

A pawing at the branches


When light is a family of bones

When light deviates
