Glass beads of shattered wings
from the porcelain artifact
tinkling down deserted chutes
of an empty water park
fronds beating against the dust
on a plastic window
abandoned jawbone and fangs
chained down to the vibrating ground.

Solar flares flickering through
a ring of eyeballs
screens tilted to collect the sweat
of a human earth, plates buckling
in a flexible skull.  Hooks pointing
through the amphibian mouth,
the shore's fiery progress.
The top of a mountain path
blossoming with fallen light.

Slamming trash can doors
the fertile corkscrew
popping in a vacant wall of foam.
