Three Ways of Looking Into the Vortex

-->



1.
Like a universe
at the center
of a black, black
hole: like the eye
of a hurricane
swallowing half
the globe: like
the round pupil
in the eye of
a deer: come
get it, your
destiny.  Your
restlessness
unbound.

2.
Like a hummingbird in salvia:
green and turquoise
abalone wings,
flashes of ruby.
Beauty is
her work.
Sweetness
passes between
beak and blossom:
all that matters
is here.

3.
Heart bandit.  Blue
tiger of night.
Moon-raider.  All
the papery hearts
of moths flock to you;
let them devour
and be devoured
by your swirling
constellation
of light.
