PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to dally on sand dunes
    / where lovers kiss in the sunset / 
    / as turtles bathe on the bay /
    / and zephyrs taunt cupped seashells /

I write to coup a fit
    / where lashes shed blue gems / 
    / as fingers deluge in laughter /
    / and pebbles jarble silk veneers /

I write to wake asleep
    / where analogs shriek silently /
    / as coos embrace melting swallows /
    / and rust tastes of glacé cutlass /

I write to pour thronged chalices
    / where spirits cross ossein thresholds /
    / as ravens lay moonlit funerals /
    / and mint spoons egress odd fountains /

I write to say I am
    / where librettos snip webbed visage /
    / as irises curve for pixels /
    / and a speck revels with the tocks of thumping dolls /

    I don’t fully understand, but I’m in awe. It’s mysterious and lovely and delicate and fierce.
