crazy zealot clockwork beast.


crazy zealot clockwork beast.

Under a bright blue hammock of cloud, small squatting creature
Plays on the windscreen, miraculously apple green, swart pinprick  eyes
Thin  legs like violent springs, apparatus for repeating
The same slight head turn, the same high bounding
The same  monotonous muezzin shree shree shree
lime juice
meadow fingernail
jerky mechanism
hardly more alive than a bending stem….
I forgot whatever it was
that made me shake my head thoroughly
as if my brain was full of replicating fractal visions.
