“Infinite Summer” – Haiku II

11—
Rust-cracked dahlias
Circle sacrificial pit
God opens her eyes

12—
The lurid solstice
Dreams’ orgy alights the woods
Unfiltered heaven

13—
These industry towns
Harbor of black, steel sorrow
Mollified in glass

14—
Avant-garde fae waltz
Fire steps in aquatic time
Spark of collision

15—
Cravat of moth wings
Centipedes mar lifeless flesh
He pales in darkness

16—
Aura on the beach
His fiberglass eyelashes
Float in like seashells

17—
Scars to the eardrum
Pulse raw, so mauled only the
Devil will hear me

18—
I tumbled, broken
Iceberg eyes froze my summer
And the child earth screamed

19—
Singe rich strands of genes
Suffering infused in us
Our true art is hurt

20—
False, bleached piety
Pure façade hides iron maid
From the free maid’s view
