“Navel of the Universe”

Published @ The Cosmos Review, Fall Issue 2008.

God had awaken in the flower of stars
Smooth surface of our rustling cars
Orphans of the evening stroking sphinx in the sun
Fleecy slow hours devour all the guns
Nickel lacking people within iron baths
Obscured creator hides within his paths
Religion of love is superannuated
Moonlight shimmers with the stars all pure
Strange giant eyes peek down from a hole
Orion’s belt is your magic lilac cure

Space liquidizer contains all the fruit
Frivolous gods drink the liquid of fools
Iron rivers hit the smooth steel shore
Meek still trees gliding and glimmering
Globes of the universe – eternal game fields

The Pyramids & Lion on a seashore land
Million years ago covered with the sand
Where once the land was soft and green – now it is gone
As our world keeps turning in the rays of our sun
Within countless stars in our universe
And in other universes stars shine as well
Unicorns and fairies may not be children stories
Look up to the skies and see ether flower worried

Elliptical ways with the embers of creation
Daffodils in the bud of all known powers
Embrace the stone within soft heavy hours…
