After Early Thick Splashes Of Snow


After early thick splashes
of rolled-down snow
air swirls into a mass

swimming through
a wallowing under-sky
covering a splayed elephant's body.

Bleeding with burnt sienna
and sandy cuts,
as tan deepening wounds
and specks of blood
spurt out into drifting daisy air.

Hanging with a stray fire
to light up and mend
pieces of sky
shredded into the wounded limbs
of a creeping scorpion

devoured by a cloud
in its closet of lighter gowns.


A blizzard lantern's globe
hangs down
with moth hairs and dust
from a skipping arthropod

shooting and tossnig out
sun's goldenrod and dandelion
needles and pins.
And filaments of rays
showering cornsilk bodies of air.


But the sky again spits out
thick gobs of mucus,
clearing its throat
of hanging sticky phlegm

drawn in deep and deeper
into its choked lungs.

Through globe-sized nostrils

Other sneezing noses
from wind-ridden electric poles
and tall skinny trees
wheeze out more graphite

and flint clouds
to settle on a whitened sheet
of wallowing dancing air.


The sun is perched
on a king's stool,
a cream-necked swallow
flipping out

a brown thrasher's beak,
and a bill curlew
poking air
with its long mouth

as it raises slanted
flickering feathers
to flutter in a bushy weave.

And gulps down
insect-winged specks
of dripping snow
stretching out bony legs.

Unclothing sky's body,
a swelling crown of light
flashed down
by trembling breaking fingers.
