Taos soaT

by Philip F De Pinto

Crewing stars
Peck in the night
The Gordian knot of one
Quetzalcoatl who cannot wake
From his ascetic flame
To bolt towards glass doors
To slide to puncture a shade
With multiplicity of beaks and talon
To thrust and parry
As it would bleed bright the shade

Enter at will or exit
The light nestling at your side
Is a fulminating sunrise
A butterfly perched on a live wire
Hence the fire in her eyes
And though a slight surge in the wire
Will ruffle her gossamer
Still the light will not wither
Too quickly into sundown


Author's Note: to the light which once nestled at my side
