jocasta awakens from a dream a breath away from sunrise, she swallows the neon light casts xylophonic slivers on the cardboard walls draped in nothing but a smile she whirls; cyclonic amongst the explosion of monarchs stained glass skippers she holds in her hand some flying free, some crushed beneath bare feet like panic breaths taken while held underwater and when the sun turns up the volume on the day she will open the blinds and let perfection thrash her corneas stare straight in to the screaming mouth of luminescence erupt in to a new day, full of exquisite green hope narcissa and the needles and we twisted through the night you are pale lace quiver so out here no one noticed you were thin that your forearms were an atlas a topography of bruises from the pricking as i lay, you whirled above me and i swear i could see the stars right through your skin trictophilia i brush her hair in the pale butter sun that paints the tops of the grass on a bluegrass june and she looks like a kramskoi siren in whispered lace the edges of which just hint at movement, of milky calf and powder, and we sit there in silence until the sirens begin to buzz like cicadas in the distance and the blue pulse washes over me like a knife blade or a terrible dream
