Silver slither
Darting through
The green ‘n’ blue
A perfect wavey line
We all follow
Flashing dark
Moon tessellations
Dreams from the deep
Slow spirals
Climbing to
Patchwork rays
Saved!

Humble Peruvian
Nodule sitting
Patiently
Silently
Waiting for rain dripping
The darkest brown imagined
My dry, warm, wet life
In absolute
Meditation
Dreams from the grave
Eyes rolling upwards
To muted echoes
Pockmarked rays
Saved!

Such a long journey
Through
History
And geography
A logistical lattice
Lines
Of pickers
Pulling
Picking
Landing
The waving sun ‘n rain

The disparate couple
Sacrificed
To a sea
Of boiling gold
A bubbly embrace
Cut down to size
Same size
Fake shape
Geometry
Personified
Wrapped together
In crispy pleasure
