Arable Night

Prepare the surface by shutting your eyes
Seed it with emptiness
loose fitting clothes that do nothing but warm

moderation of calamity takes weight
the night seeps in and your mind is cleared

away in the updraft of ideas
colliding and dancing in the active wind

a tornado overlays distance
into the eyes of a lizard
sunning itself on mystical rocks

worshipped by travellers with miniature stone castles
spotted by rain

add to my collection back in the city,
but their holy semblance does not appear however we arrange them
