Scrapbook Eyes

 
scrap copy
essential as air

hot as solar flare

nuclear as fusion–
 
–your gaze

seeps elemental

power no container

can fully contain
 
 
–your lids

half-composing

half-eclipsing

lightning

& northern lights
 
 
—your eyes

guides in the Night

seismic currents

no quaking earth

withstands
 
 

–nor wants to…

Part moth,

part phoenix,

part Icarus,

Eye

impel

to their autumn fire.
