To grasp a sharper transparency
I paint with tailfeathers of macaw

to describe this bubble crystal ball orb
I trace its form finding its niche

the invisible pigment takes shape
becoming more fluid and fine

before it disembarks from warp and weft
moving out into the world

with a purpose all its own
when I neither expect nor reject it

neither need nor need not need it
but dance with parrot feathers in my hair

it comes back of its own volition
this transparent sentient knowledge

that has known people beings places
far and wide and has come back

returned eternal presence
agency pregnant with freedom

lighter than air.
