a section from Symphony No. 2 || Ric Carfagna

- 10 -

Speak now of the sea

of fluid gods

coiled in mortal hemispheres

of worm ghosts’ burrowing

vertiginous fissures

shredded cerebral dust scars


on littering wind

on sun scorched strand

here a philosopher

structuring modernity

on the plains of St. Augustine

an untamable id

a fleabane meadow

a cutlass severing

the skylark’s wing

a rat embedded in spider silk

delicate ash glass chrysalis

blowing in alchemical breeze

blind sage on plaintive vessel

burning on iron seas

now a peasant dreams

of wingless crows

mourning the skyline ruins
