episodic ponds
shrinking beneath the sun’s beams
as above’s below

a fish for a gnome
a lake for water boatman
a sea for a flea

why the umbra turned
a darker shade of gloomy
over bill’s mothers

the shape of what was
the then of when the sky wept
the spillage is this

piddle of the gods
offspring of the isobars
liquid cats & dogs

the aftershaft’s splash
silver under blooming blue
splosh in green wellies
