retrograde

directions at random
 feet tempted to take a flying leap
found    one fly agaric
a temptation of visions
half mad truths
mundane in some elsewhere

here the local talents
 assemble their wares:
the silkworm spins a tapestry  in languid dream  
 of  bat flickers  across the backyard sky
 guided by his inaudible song

 cloven prints by the creek
 all that remains of a satyr  passing through

this woman seated   among mayapple parasols
 needles her canvas with silken threads
 stories the tracks
and trackbacks 
of all that passes
