Steaming Silicate Fragmentation
Perhaps
more crystalline
than interior translucence
than marbled coracle phantoms
sailing across a fulminated bay of seals
paradoxically alive
as troubling lenticular power

this being the sight strained
to such a degree
that the voice loses foci
with its sorcerous animal whirlings
with its colubrine nightmares
with its sound from a muted ravens' wick

the sight with its feverish structural power springing from a phlogotic oxygen
from the minerals of inverse Martian blazes

this being the biaxial as crystal
something other than Saturnian
being orectic fire as the substance of Mars
