Thirty five completed ellipses.
Comprising the matricies of now.
Begin compiling the thirty-sixth,
presently. Of today.
And, my eyes first narrow before going wide as the tableau reveals.
Speak to me mine sheep and mine mæstyre satyr.
No malice shalt invade my mind or sour myself,
yet, still can I sense your maleficent power
Why do you howl thusly? And, do you know that
this has Æ heard before.
I want, too.
I want two.

Of the five streams pouring forth, sea-ward,
one unnaturally flows upstream to BayTown’s Strange-House.
The starling now a’lights on my left shoulder.
Worn as I wear the stow of the red dragon in early autumn.
