Von Instant: my FM

good moon in the afternoon
good afternoon to my haiku

cube "A" is underground –

beneath the earth
beneath the stars
beneath the eggs

"A" from type "A"

Exposure 11:15

The scorpion has one eye: the flight path of a word
The scorpion has two eyes: the spirit in the meat
The scorpion has three eyes: our puzzling moon
The scorpion has four eyes: microscopic prisoner
The scorpion has five eyes: another everything
The scorpion has six eyes: the wolf I fed


The petrified trees
have leaked into
this dimension.

I’m feeling around
for eggs in a nest.

          three Os in a row

I’m scrambling.
