Metaphysical Montage

On the stage of a window sill,

a wasp lies on its back

with legs quivering--

a solicitude of

death throes.

The sun that lights...

The sun that lights the insect's final act







also caresses the early leaves

of the coleus.

so attractively stroked with burgundy and scarlet,

as if God--










interrupted in His painting--











had quickly stopped to wipe His hands

on mint






before answering the door


to gypsy souls

home to stay.
