following the (gumleaf) star

following the (gumleaf) star


may as well – stars can’t compete

with neon/l.e.d.-glow anyway

none  pulse “follow me”

not this age

so follow the ironbark joyfully decorating

 brand new indigo and magenta leaf- tremble

birth your own star from  galactic-stellar

nursery within – incubating from the sheer need

of it,  embarrassed by its own starving –

an oracle - a sort of leaf-christ
