Transitory

Inside the comfortable new warmth

Of the dragon-conqueror church

A red admiral dances it soul-tattoo dance

Against the Easter feet

Of stained glass saints:

She want to live another day,

But is beating the flight scales from

Her own dazzle-eye wings…

And the child that, only moments

Ago was so entranced, has moved on …

… is now wondering how much of

The scar-scab he can pull from

His leg before blood-tears appear.
