carp

spotted carp
mouth agape at
the water’s edge
/gluttonous
unthinking
unknowing/
:granular
defiance:
orange glinting
pale white under
the raving sun

there was a place
hidden
a waterfall carved
through the rock
calcium bubbles
solidified
the streams of
burnt umbra
drizzle in
stagnant solidity

a lone cry
a mockingbird
alone
in the light

the mindless
carp
mouths agape
/a blur of
movement at
the water’s edge/
:deification
by deicide:
blackorangewhite
roiling at the surface
a dragonfly
in the summer air
