emerald cover – July 21

7.21

emerald green pond scum covers

with a beauty that belies what lies

beneath, like smiling Jezebel who

grinned before she betrayed.

 

hard and flinty and crystalline,

the air and earth let go of what

lingers within, and if I didn’t

know better I’d say

 

wow how nifty.

we watch and sweat

as the heat

turns us into glass.
