Mortality

. . . I am the profound humidity,

you the darkened sky. Together we

will provoke the purpleclouds

to flash gold, a momentary

epigram for us.

We discuss this over coffee.

I watch the physic of your breath,

the geography of your face . . .

–excerpt from “Mortality” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (virtual artists collective/purple flag, 2015). First published in Home Planet News.
