The Detail (14)

orbit of bodies
light in panes
glass bowls.

our bodies orbit,
chasmed to brain-
space, fused cloud-

volutions volitioning
the ripe curvatures
of habitable stones.

The Detail (15)

surface flash of sea-
wind, -wings, -worms
turned gold-cold closed
door of fluttering distance:

snail-skull needled to move-
ment's alien syringe-light
off the fuselage of ignorant
plane, planet, plants, pains.

thus, the residual core
of magma spills, thermal crusts,
brittle stores, elsewise unribboning
their masses, elsewise, a nest

of stars tars the stones
and feathers them with laughter.
