Windows Fail

And Then The Windows Failed - And Then (After Emily Dickinson) 12/20

And then the Windows failed            – and then
oceans of bees – across the threshold come –
The eyes a whirled, reaching compress – cold –

A cascade of Rooms – A futile Tapestry
The sudden mind – static – thousand-eyed glasses
swirl – marble – A tree of elongated hands –

There – is the Lock-box Chain – and
a slam-break – weeping Skin, demanding more –
A Suit of man – shattered un-holding arms –

Interior child, fitting in a Storm – and then
the cool Palm of Rest – and then
the Windows failed – and then – buzzing then –
