airplane streams

airplane streams and my eyes closed
the repetition of the metallic shell
supines to the sand floor

the distant traffic hovers through my ears
and shores the reverbing hum of the motor wave
like this industrial breathing

they impress the foundries of light below
while my eyelids closed

daguerrotypes with out silver breath
wipe out its chrome and galvanized stones
and sun shone its yellow gold

and sand(ra) lifts her liquid house
and constructs her castles with thremos cups

what a day
