Jewels Within Jewels



In quiet moments visions swirl across
the confines of silence; coloured with hues
of memory's dry weighty influence.
Three joints bend on six legs as I feel air
shimmer incorruptible vibrations,
antennae tastes sweet scent as I scissor
my jaw; a powerful sideways motion.

I'm surrounded by mirrored images,
busy-body strength reflects in cold eyes;
multifaceted jewels within jewels.
Exoskeleton's hard edge around me
protects this soft interior; spirit
bound I capture a wild instant before
the sky is covered with sudden darkness.
Awake - sweat stings the realisation
of I am alive again as a man.
