Character Flaw

 

outside the brief

gloriole light

 

the wax turns back

 

into

the stiff polyps

of bears

 

and I watch as their

shadows return

to forest softly

 

at first

 

the wind

snuffs to

blind me

green

 

until I’m blasted moss

to the fir trunks

 

the harvest of mushrooms beneath the leaves

the millipede’s groan of chewed holes

 

the sacraments in bark

without knives

 

so hand-less

the wind flaps

me gently like

a yellow flag
