Daniel Crockett

Chasing Flight

We hunt creases in stone walls
Shrill calls through still air
Duck gelid masses that draw
Force beyond all umbra
Rich time screws seconds tight
Water breaks light, we chase flight

To thread inclement angles
Lip swings her hiemal clip
Boreal nips the bitumen press
As slate grey whispers guess
The guns of gold dawn strike
Water breaks light, we chase flight

Our collapse cheats gravity
Delight in torn insanity
Beryl blue limbs clatter
Teeth chatter, lips cerulean
Steal a lungful gasp
Water breaks light, we chase flight

Eventide, under dull skies
We cheat cold concrete weight
Bones prey for the howling gulls
To dodge the pull of land
To inhabit ebbs and flows
Water breaks light, we chase flight
