6/30: synthetic skins

 

synthetic skins

 

dolphin embryo digitized forestry

reproductive animation

identifying calls & bone

teeth, roots, jaw, skull

 

This is the mouth under my body plan

This is the muscle of the water

 

digital animal sounds

television of the interior

pixelated whistling for blood

a pathology, a tincture

 

oh digitized meat war

we’re coming for you

 

 

4/30 calcite

 

calcite

in the cavities i’m colorless

hot like a rotting tooth

i become new forms

concretion among the fading druse

vitreous as cut glass

i effervesce

but how i fracture

is witness

to all that petrifying

 

 

 

3/30: chalcedony

 

chalcedony

the gentle subtlety of true light breaks

arrests then aggregates radiating

how the glow extends to us despite our faults

 

crystal life system your gap symmetry a balance of victories

moss agate, the nacreous imagine, stalactite, a petrified wood for lovers

how you hover as forms

in the interstices

 

warrior, queen

your magnanimity

a wonder seeking air

 

 

1/30: rock beach

 

rock beach

we dig for ancestors

of, relating to, or tending those hard, dark rocks

opaque in their soliloquies always why me why me why

we coax time from their celestial bodies

our instruments gaining measure in the

massive bed of (p)latitudes
