Organicity

Organicity

From the balcony
         suspended
from the fronds
         of a coconut palm
a spider web
         long filaments
of sunlight
         optic fibers
wired to catch
         living food
a miniature
         giants’ causeway
as seen in Salvador
         or Country Antrim
and again that mystery
         how the earth
transforms iron
         and calcium
magnesium and zinc
         into nutrition
delivered fresh
         on the wing
caught in the tangle
         devoured at leisure
