tenuous devices

o zinnia azure

have i awaited

on this shore, forlorn

ebbing
in the fading flow

of fleeting sways
no more

shifting
slivered beams of light

adorned our flesh

with lips immured,

its passive adulation

kissed with scorn.

the lines did yearn

for tempered reason

dearth dividing
us, its wrath

though nothing
would forewarn

of weeping skies.

there we stood

the air, impending

propped on painted panels

as the precious
pretense
pooled
beneath thine eyes.

now was then
the past
conspired

thy petals
turned to frigid shades

assembled

in the midst
of Eden’s garden.

torn
between diverging dreams

two tenuous devices
tethered

drifting
from the lure
of looming argent.
