IStarboy of Ortygia

Jason Stelzner

Among soft scents of a tidal reedbed

hush of sedge warbler, cormorant

and heron, she watches the Starboy

gather moonglow meandering deeper

breaths of blind men, bundled to unfit

harvests, of bracken breault. Vagabounds

to dark rumour; his prayers roam her

starlit fields of solitary flight, until words

in unspoken hunger, carve books from their

imperfect night.

This is fun Jason x thank you
