I.

On the side of the highway

an outstretched wing

unfurled black

feathers twitch in the breeze

that no longer lift it.

.

II.

On the side of the highway

unfurled curls of black

tires lie.

In the wind of passing traffic,

unwound wires twitch.

I blink.

What

exactly

did I see?

The iridescent cellophane

of dragonfly wings

would make excellent

windows in an

insect cathedral.

The colony queen

could sip nectar

from the jeweled flagon

of dragonfly body

and make a benediction

to beauty and sacrifice.
