Electron


Who housed you
          here, sweet fix of smoke

Bells, warning flies
          held & moled

Paraglid amid
          cages. You tab

The slip, & I

Flash silhouettes
          of burnt

Tree, anemone. Blue
          & red bloom.

Color me, lip the lumined
          structure: how

You live where you live.
