when celebrities die in sets of three,
are people puzzles carousels of sound?
omens, numerous as birds of sea,
or glow-worms, illuminate the ground,
plumage skirts the breeze
fanciful in flight,
of fear, of the trapeze,
verdant? just at night
do fire-bugs flare incensed.
temperament- a tuft of jest,
to take on a new one, jiltest test
as a caress, tender- short of breath.
rainbow’d, pixeled: so refractions of my dream,
a sentimental scream seems as serene.
