Sphere of Influence

war songs

beyond the barracks

convection tectonics

as the wanton bring

the disorderly

to the slovenly

these airbrush paintings

polychromatic arrangements

drawn with the subatomic

on translucent pages

beyond tanks and ranks

as pig iron sinks

in return to stone

the heart of duress

and circumspect

gasps and clasps its rest

in a full body caress
