batting my eyes
at the lightcatcher

dream spelunker
heart miner
blind digging mind vole

my cave is darker
than your black eye
deeper than your promise

and i turn from your
ancillary embrace
always faster

than the glint of love
you fake with your
mirror shard necklace

shark tooth impostor
as talisman of never
with your riptide amulet

hope is a survivor
and you are false idol
idle empty orb

and once again
you’ve forgotten
i have wings
