Fragments… …Photo Isaac Furtney ©2017

the treasure chest underneath the waves

seaweed sprawling in the cold sun

treacherous carcass licks flies out of the tepid air

mist thick with blood and sweat, scorned

The Great Turtle greeted the Great Pumpkin

…but it was not Tremendous.

 

Ariel roar’d with flam’d amazement

and sand washed across the sea-floor

and hands tossed pizza dough into the air

your words float and dance across the sky, the same color

as the turbulent sea with its gentle eye

 

Entonces un cuarteto.

cherubim under the thumb of sweet Jove

still-vexed wine spills on the white carpet

Prospero and Caliban toe-to-toe
