Harmonious Coleoptera

daisy, night’s color,

crackles notes against the skyline

 

harmonious Coleoptera

reminds us of how silence travels faster than light and

 

figmented filaments conflagrate for our fumbling tongues

seen and lost

 

in a song unplucked from the dense, cool, twinkling fabric

seen and lost

 

I should have sang their song

or noted it

but who can sharply dance to a rhythm without percussion,

only a false memory rattles on now,

 

and the glimpsing flashes serve me in solitude,

and bellow an understanding,


that glittering harmony is easily lost in expanding density
