Equinox

velvet evening
Chicago September

streets in reprieve
release the day’s heat
to autumn’s chill
bated in wait
on upper climes

relaxed on a rooftop
where heat and chill meet
watching

one delicate, filmy, goassamer cloud
approach a skyscraper
as a reverse wave

shoaling horizontally
then lapping downward
only to slither seductively up

cunningly defying gravity
crashing toward the heavens

in timeless moments
as a diaphanous cloud caresses
robust, black, triangular trusses

a boundless Universe
comfortably contracts
in simultaneous synchronicity
She feels

a stealthy tiger treading dry savanna grass
intricate crystal sea ice matrix bearing heavy snow
a Mongolian beetle stamping along in wasteland sands
loving laughter from a mahogany pub in a lonely town
the dull, seething roar of great and powerful rivers
islands abiding a solitary charm in vast oceans
a red, black, brown and silver earth
supporting and rearing all humanity

for one moment
Chicago
but a vellum screen

one puncture
and the Universal truth gushes forth
obliterating everything in its path
