When and if they

With a twist, I turned
the smiling skull key
clock-wise to a slow click
that could be heard an hour later
with the earthquakes
rising up from my molten core
of lightning storms
I summoned to destroy
half of who I had become

Last night
was not an ordinary night
(fed the flames of mutation
a seed ingredient,
a mitosis,
and a multiplication)

Last night
emits an aftershock—
(the wall of light
my staff
can conjure
in the dark)

How can I trust
these pointy ears and a cleft
that stretches when timelessness
licks polished matrices?

We grow a long-lost contact
in a body
that’s been established
in plain sight
that no one notices

Even mouth to mouth
with the source
some return
empty handed.
