10.3.22a

the green treacle of dumas golden casketed
on fingertip to tongue to dampen heartache

splendor arises languid and all disjointed
foreground background swap shadow and fire

the trembling network of whispers go quiet
as the sensuous bosom of time envelopes me

a late night traveler stops to hear an owl
and slides a pack of cards from his pocket
