Tidal Basin

Germination Detail Part III, by Leslie Shellow

contemplations about what stays in the net

The pelagic sky touches you and me
Simultaneously, a column of shifting
breezes makes a cloud feather
 and disappear
a string of stars pounds rocketfire
into a darkened sky like a heavy metal band
the sound of stars is not a twinkle, rather
an explosion.
But we knew that.
