             for Aiko Scott

disconnect the cilium of open logic
until its darkflow is removed
and there lies a paradox
of every feather and rock pillowing
queen of non-linear equations
her throne an eternal virgin pulsar
putting taste to the chaos

think hard till the egg is soft
but don’t fall prey, implode
so as to deter imagisensation
the aeon game of connect the dots
wolfing in from über staircase
where myriad galaxies cluster
to a precocious pearl necklace
answers individual
as those who dare ingest her riddles

if you think you have resolution
then by all means pass the gravy
though don’t be fearful
if in encounters ahead
it’s evaporated into pleasant mutation
it’s only her servants
stretched at playwork
giving chase to the eighth day of creation
that warrants no rise or setting sun

Ahhh the imponderable mystery of the universe! You've caught the immense cosmos and the microcosm as well! Cheers!

Mind-blowing yet playful ("imagisenation", "pass the gravy") - I enjoyed this little cosmic joyride.... d:-)
