Scintilla ( For Mr Wolffe)

In violet steam stars moodily shift
In the lace canopies of bareboned trees
Barathea backed ghosts walk down wary paths
If you move a stone it leaves its imprint
The blood of its instability leaves a stain

In scintillating particles the stars drip dust
In our hands are whorled sections of the sky
Moire satin, damask clothes corrode and shred
Some shadows tend to coruscate and glitter
Unsure if they should still remain.


Manipulated print and handstitch
