Air Abandoned Of Unnatural Perfume

Terracotta flowerpot smiles at the landlocked bard
lost in thought
playing with his gentle weakness for working with the bees
he keeps

Brainwaves and brambles branch beneath the feet of fleeing beetles
The barmaid smokes another cigarette flourishing a threadbare featherduster
like some fearsome ancient weapon
the black taxidermied crow cannot help
but to ignore

A weary fisherman knits his net
the way a wayfarer walks through the drapery of dreams
Hierarchies of hieroglyphs painted on the page
depict fat barnacles and pebbles smooth

A lone flutist plays his favorite tune
pointing his silver stick at the blackness
enveloping his song
