This collection
of exploding emotions

Cobalt cloud mischief

With lightning jazz
stroboscope twilight

This atmospheric argument
so Articulate

Our United serenade

An organization of confusions
husk over peace

The husking of serenity
A tympanic twilight

Everyone palpating
In the strobed darkness

When an electrician reaches
A live wire

There’s relaxation
Stare back at the twinkles

In candle light.
