Spider Pillows & Candle Wax

Vertical black stroke,
blinking on and off again—

she blinks on and off again—

over page after open page of burning white light.

She likes to power down the external world—

one eyelid at a time.

Burning white light—

her pulsations drive an elegant motorized heart,

through vertical black strokes—

blinking on and off again—

over burning white light,

until she births letter combinations—

within a jagged landscape of lines growing.

The impetus comes from subterranean forces pushing—

pushing her subterranean muscles on and off again—

while Earth passes secrets from seeds through soft soils.

Secrets that soft fingertip pads,

post to rice paper windows,

like this view of the world—


looking through wafers

of sand-pressed glass at you too—

out there—



looking out—

to somewhere else.

Aren’t these machines replete?

These gene transporters replete?


a leaf, a cabbage, a little twinkle in her eye—

a vertical black stroke,

blinking on and off again. Replete.

    • Thank you, Sasha Jenna and the Mountain View City Council & Travel Advisory Center. I will deeply consider a trip to your fine, lush and welcoming town. Some day in the near/distant future. Please share this with all the fine peoples and promotional agencies of the Great State of California. Hope you guys get that gas leak taken care of soon. All my best! And don’t forget to visit Boring, Oregon. It’s a tantalizing travel destination.
