They Will Sew the Blue Sail

Filigree, Flora | Sharon Wang

Born of blut and ill-

formed intention,

V. practiced crystallization-

a fly caught

in a fine-toothed filigree,

aching his way into becoming brutal.

As if, in the spider’s head

was woven

a shelter for time if time could be



Did you ever feel full

on this world

a tissue pressed to a loosening tooth

until blood suffuses it
