Mirage Evinced Across The Thalassic →

by Will Alexander

Blowing out from the dunes
one sees a thermal homology
an evanescent dust migration
verdant
procursive
feral
an equine
part retrocausal & blizzard
like a blur across spinning gemstone deltas
with its fault scarps
its meteorites
its darkened mineral monsoons

it possesses by its speed
the first locomotion of the Eocene
with the spore of its Arabian pulling shoulders
its mass
eclectic
quantum
its dense & switchable markings
both Chestnut & Sorrel

its anti-laryngeal
inverted
anathema
with its suspension surmounted
by deciduous grasp
by protozoal fermentation
partaking of the fever
of apricot
of Babylonian magenta
with its sea-blue rendevous with clouds

in which it appears
doubled
riderless
throughout a belt of stunned coronas
elaborate
negated
envacuumed

eruptive
like a nervous fatidic
across a latitude of cycles
pluperfect
with motionless centigrade farming

this Shetland
this Cayuse
with the pansophical grafts of separate planetary fables
blowing
across the pelagic transparency of the captain
with his ship falling upward
in a dust enhanced pneumonics

motion perhaps
across
the solferino impressions ignited on Venusian plateaus
or perhaps
across fields of glass on Miranda*
or vitrescent eruptions as waves from the abyss

as if
the quantum captain had never existed
had never taken as current
the paralysis
the salt
the ingestions
emitted from the drift
envisioned by great Loxodromes

the glance of Bombay & Carthage
of fiery diatonic glaciers
predacious
obscure
kaleidoscopic
so that all parts of amphora
exist within a vacant spectral harness

& the mirage
being the pony as nanism
with its radius
its tarsus
its gaskin
utterly burning & uncontained
always beguiling
the optical dice with refraction

*Miranda is an outer planetary moon
