The phoenix

As a fleck of blue heat,
a bird's schematic
that kindles in an oxygen gust

Does it grow up to do all the same things?

To touch the lips of knowledge
From on high a rose of malignant beauty
An infection
How dare we to question
Question the enormity
The purity
Indignant indifference
To absolute zero
Frozen petals a nice shade of blue
Burning green
Integrity, an equanimity endless
Stepped on light
Feathered clouds of weight
Light, temperate
Sun on soft wind on green stems
Fire on petals
Lips on fiery knowledge

The Hour Glass

Time eating to eternity
Ravaged by the animals
That pick and claw at it

The Fire that burns in us
Dropping slowly to the end

Slipping sand into the sea
Consumed by the tides and
Cast into the eternal abyss

Never failing to run out
Right as time is up.

What It Evoked

Today was the day I found your crumpled little skeleton
hunched over the wheel
a host to the dust growing on the rubber
You looked like you were bracing rebirth
about to climb out of mother's womb
sneak through the dark of her walls
dance and recoil
but there you were, in the car instead
honking the silent horn after the midnight screw up
Now you're looking trapped in death forever
And though I both pity and envy you
I cannot help but feel that somehow
we are both the same.
