Efi Hatzimanolis #80 'Look you now, how the sky', Inspired by Sallie Portnoy's sculpture 'Nascentias Blades of Glass' (with a nod to RV)
Look you now, how the sky grows,
could be a feather fallen
from an angel wing,
or the plundered fin of the rare sky shark.
Then again, it’s the sky’s third eye
through which birds fly
in threading themselves to another,
as yet unblown, sky.
You may follow, if you wish.
Perhaps, it’s a slice of extinct weather tissue,
resinous DNA preserved in spirits, for the spirits.
Or a nest in which to prepare for your best.
Alright then, it’s a head rest. Wake,
and it’s a shoehorn,
for easing your blown mind back into the blue -
look you now, how the sky grows
from your inside out
