Kiss (from the Time Capsule)

solitary Cinder uplift’d
by the song of Nature’s breath
fades the melody
fades her wings
to alight upon a needle of pine
to slumber
to emerge from her cocoon
a candle of hope
an armor’d torch
scourge of the Forest
drown’d into ashes
the starving Ground
to suckle new saplings
richer than before

so too
a simple peck from your lips to mine
shall inflame the bond of our flesh
till our spirits slip into th’ Innerworld
where all seasons are one
Night to his pillow of dreams
as squints Day and stretches her light
to awaken Love beyond measure


just a small parcel
garnish’d by man
our housekeepers
preserving our endangerment

though not the wild
the vanishing wild
consum’d by
and violence

this alternate paradise
must suffice as paradise
until Nature’s children
from Mankind’s progress
… or Mankind’s ashes
