In canteen getaways over howling mutches
Instantiated obsidian panthers of slick sheens
Ilked in rosette like abstractions of iridescent pinks,
Instigated reveries confound refuted mythologies.
Inside ignorances protesting indignances
Of memoirs trickling, neatly held
Obscurities absolve insistent falls,
As they are named:
The outer circumferential visage
Of isles laden with iridescent ores
Stained in champagnes and marines
In glimmering idiosyncratic meanderings
Surrounding nitrogenous asphyxiations
Of igneous deposits bent in silicon sheens
In plausible replications; seditiously contoured
Altercations met in disfigured capabilities
Exchanged in electronic measures whittled in biases.
Unraveling fates in magicks or in numbers
Within fabrications once anointed: reviled.
Unable to cast vapours, sans-senses,
Of the catalyst and its manifestations
Absolving it as wishful resonances.
They left glowing vapour trails
Gliding in the moonlit stratosphere
Waves of coloured lights undulated
Like the terrestrial Aurora Australis.
Stagnantly they hover within vision
Just for a moment,
Just long enough to soak it in,
Then they vanish.
If they wanted
They could have transmitted
Telepathic waves into our heads,
They could have made contact,
But they didn’t.
Only in memory,
They never existed.
