A FACE

raw unshadowed heat
revealing

volant
shape-shifting

hot ice
an antique shame

new forming
unresolving

the heart aches
breaks unbreaking

hearts meet
unmeeting

windows watch
unwatching

unforgiving circles
of decay

where total eclipse
foreshadows

the darkness
of old night

and chaos
rends the flower ....

25th October 1999
