Galaxy in a Shark’s Eye – Monica Flegg

Monica Flegg

25

My muse
is a shifty sort
wafting
in on a
steam of conscience
fishtailing ideas to
and fro
chiseling phrases from
a coffin bone
 
scenting them with
tropical lantana
zigzagging curious
and citrus
like anyone could follow
that crazy
rain
of
thought.
 
 
I want to add
syllables
to
segue my sanity
or
run assistance to
my imagined reader,
but
I don’t because
deep down
I know
the fragments align
exactly
like the
galaxy
in a
shark’s eye.
