Writing: Satellite

by Beauchamp Art

A perfect, spherical crow’s nest
Atop a dome of ink
As blackened quills fold together
Offering an iridescent shimmer.

An obsidian crown
Elegantly conformed to its wearer
Held firm by hidden fastens
Cool metal securing this sculpture.

A fascinating calm wave
Waking under cool night air
Shimmering with subtle shifting tide
Brief glint of white across pitch scene.

A pellicular satellite
Broken in its orbit and descended
In perpetual collision
Silent against starlight.

A pupil fixed in focus
Dilated and upturned
Constricted into dense singularity
Unobservable end of suns.

A sight beyond vision
Hopeful impossibility
Resolver of contradiction
Where all roads meet.
