A knot in the gut
Tangled thread loosening
serpent brooding
in summer hibernation.
The solstice, the solstice!
and four hundred updates later,
the crouching dragons are slayed.
it is not a cycle
if the butterfly can’t become
a caterpillar.
a toad breeds venom
and yet the bard finds the stone
that adorns the crown.
what shall we find
beyond the wait…
a venomous spoil
or a twinkling star!
