Lucy Alexander #41 Waxing Gibbous from Dylan Jones’ Photo

Cloudform orbing

to say smoke ring

perpetual quavering

sharp as a dolphin’s tooth

or soft like

rabbit velvet

underneath the wound

of skyline central

there is your shell

tracing about your deep

round of light

with that earfold pattern

on your hide

piebald familiar

backhand

the whack of fingerprint

stuck out there

orbiting scenic

peering through ozone

leaping up out of focus

back arched spume

where breath

falters and quakes

the pinnacle

of gravity’s grace

hung on nothing

but the blear

of my own eye.
