Iris Dreams

The moon bleeds
white halos
into blue.
Barn owls wing
restless among
palm tree nests,
breaking the night
skin with night shrieks.
Tongue & talons
anticipate
the quick of
claret foretaste.
Feather gowns drift-
eternal in beds of iris
tissue dreams, shivering
in wind arabesques.
Dawn scores open
the charcoal sky, &
shatter into glass
windows of stained light.
