POEM: "Flowers Of The Sun & Moon"

Flowers Of The Sun & Moon

On earth heavenly things
In a terrestrial state

Flowers of the sun & moon

Old Proclus says that
It’s within the power
Of every plant to sing

Forming a procession
Within the limits of their power
Behind the torches of the universe

Art doesn’t kill as fast as science

Venus transits the sun
The moon is its own eclipse

Lacking an organ of speed
There is no speed absolute

Set out for work in the relative
Of cars & other people’s roads
Then behind you is a poem.
