Embroidery of steel shielded glass
letting light touch a sheaf of paper
trapdoors open animal lids
in the cemetery ceiling
arms trailing shoes under moss
the sparks from a dyed bronze letter.

A statue sewn to a parachute
and the tug of war in the hollow wind.
Ripped cushions that pin whirling quills
to a shaft in the crust of earth.

Chipped lips coating a flying tether
at the end of a fog-lit dream
and the cream in blackness.
