Never, Invented

A drum swings from sky to sky.
Mice with fists have made 
daggers of a shattered eye.
A screen rejects the projector’s light.

Sharp buckles litter the way.
Surprise removes the wings 
from all its birds. Children 
wear a winter mask as war

is priested by scripts bucketed up 
from a frozen well. All doors diminish. 
Mirrors pretend and facts are half
human. Tigered feathers fall 

from the dove. In the veins of delirium 
only dust circulates. There is no air, 
no silver noise but boots in the attic.
A spider’s idea. Crazy fire blisters time.
