13/30: Celestite

 

Celestite

 

The veinous interval

Sun splits the trees

The air becomes celestite

We are solvent

Finally

What now to do

but cook these skins

We won’t need them where we’re going

 

 

8/30: rose quartz

rose quartz

 

Aureole threshold

is totem

Three rosy smooth stones

 

Fibrous & generally stable in ultraviolet light

One is found or one finds oneself

 

Irradiation forms dusky hues

Rock crystal asterism

My terminal bud

 

In each hardness a prism or vein

A loathsome pustule

A bubblegum center

 

A dichroic future of bilateral symmetries

Our stars pulsing under the skin
