gibbous faggot hypnosis

 

 

day moon gaze blank

 

as nether witness

 

 

a floating

 

sky glitch      

 

gradual glowing

 

corolla of no

 

 

petals in the almost dusk

we forgive the sky for being a mirage

 

 

my drenched constellation

 

seeps stars into the night dryness

 

forging atmospheres

 

that dissolve playfully in immediate blue

gay flowers to heal my neuroses

 

 

floral clumps in fernish glades

 

diffusing pollen gone traipsingly

 

lost my quell obsess

 

all sere aspiring but

 

no drop of spill to pool as gentle ponds
