Left Behind

Curried by gentle

Dragon-breathed winds,

High clouds, gold-fringed

Tailings of the mined-out

Dreams and wishes of

Gone-world gods and ghosts

Roll across the blue geometry:

The materials of which

Rainbows are forged.

The paradise we slept so well in

Was desolate once, mayhap

Will be again and

I will be left behind.
