    Birth was blue
    last night
    a fleeting sky
    with celerity of
    growth
    'lectricity finger
    paint'd the evening
    lighting nostalgia
    from the inside
    of a clear bowl

    I remember birth
    like this ~
    water lilly children
    pressed against
    panes
    hands flared
    against aquarium
    squares

    I gave my breath
    and prints to the
    seahorse's
    aqua-velvet
    dance; clenching
    my body like fists
    for the
    paternal push of
    quiet intrigue

    There were days
    when the ocean
    looked grey
    water so chalked
    with digestion
    exhalation
    rudimentary backdrops
    of great elms
    bent over in
    under water storms
    --that God was no
    longer a mere man
    He was a giant;
    eyes so large you
    could drown in
    pasty pupils --
    and I was nothing
    but a growing child
    in a deluge of
    desire

    Sometimes still this
    birth is blue
    This birth has no
    passion
    ...only crayola scars
    drowsy colors on
    drunken
    aqueducts

    Birth though is like
    a blush; a rush of
    blue orgasms after
    delivery

    It is so innocent
    stillborn
    with heaven
    on all four sides
    I'm at the center
    and the bud of
    my mouth is
    sewn closed
    as I witness the
    developing
    resignation of my
    own parcelled soul
