Miroslav’s Cicada

Lichen landscape IMG_20130725_152312

















no one has the time today
just to sit and do a little haunting.
from Water Sprite by Miroslav Holub

shattering the silence
would be the breaking of a mirror
and bring at least seven years
of shared bedtime stories
and a bad blood ending

tricked by faux love songs
you meet your end
in the jaws
of a clever katydid

I lay no claim
to your sad, sad song

shattering the silence
(is the breaking of the mirror)
is the breaking of bread
is the sharing of
discrete delusions
(is the beginning of the end
that has happened before
and will happen again)


Depth Charge: Miroslav Holub, Battlestar Galactica and Peter Pan
