Fairy Eyes Bloom Into Quiet Shelter

1.
The dense feminine weeping threatens to disappear
into black forest stones carpeted with lichen.

I step closer, in search of the source of pain.

Instead, I am confronted by
a voracious wall of writhing foliage:
a seedling tower of protection.

2.
Constructed with butterfly legs,
grafted against her mossy thoughts
in confused spasms,
it seemed to invoke itself
as my feet dumbly rustled leaves.

3.
I froze like a spider’s victim
as I watched her fertile buzzsaw tears
tear open slits of green pillow,
exposing the gangly thickets of discontent
that must have tied her sleeping subconscious
into taunting ovals.

4.
Ah, those soul-staggering eyes.

Dense wildwood-night concussions
cascaded from her diamond-tipped gaze to mine,
sharpening the dullest corners of my head
until suddenly I felt the eruption of newly curious
fingertips, eyes, and knees.

She watched in mischievous fascination
as I spelled out in a hundred blades of picked grass
the youthful and mute vocabulary
of adulthood lost and childhood regained.
