Bijoux Beings IV (for His Daliness)
of ruby insect Thing–
what made it seem–
sipping tumescent matter
on which it thrives.
Below is the color of all that is to come.
Above the shadow Has Been, writhing, writhing.
where moon boat hides its eye
–colors of the sun transposed–
The matter has sloughed its dermis
and complements the visible.
