Midnight Hands


Midnight Hands

Prescribe
A cool wind—
Blowing through
A garden of naked
Statues—

Goddesses of
Cobalt and
Trees of green,

Against a blanket
Of fog, heads look away
As needles rise

From the ground—
Three-dimensional
Print emerging in
The mud

Taste the craft
Of midnight hands
Sweet sprinkled sands
On a stray sweep
Of wood,

Scorched ghosts
In the shadowy
Straps of a
Little black dress.

  1. Taste the craft
    Of midnight hands
    Sweet sprinkled sands
    On a stray sweep
    Of wood...nice really like the textures of this part...and there is a nice mysticism to the whole piece...in the imagery and mood as well

    good to see you as well....smiles.
