Shapeshifter

 

“This is how one ought to see, how things really are.”

– Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception (1954)

listen –                          

the whisper

of fern & thistle!        

go whistle 

a tune in the dark!     

 

And the Mad Poet cried:

 

Taste brine & cold night shadows!

As bulging forest echoes ooze             

from stars & ancient pine trees -             

& stillborn moonlets light a yard 

of glazed & purple underbrush,

rustling, gnawing

on broken clockwork bone – – – – ! 

The moths have eaten all the padding           

under my armour!            

           

            

listen –         

the whisper

of fern & thistle!
