Benedict Brunch

Stabbed sunrise
hemorrhages yolk
to dying sunset
salmon pinstripe veins
scrawled into
craters of a muffin moon .

Tarawera erupts pepper ashes
bomb Pollock hues
of fire lakes and liquid flames
spill across ghostly rocket trees -

Nature competes with Herself
on my plate.

Colonised Aladdin Lamp
grants Earl Tea and milking maids.
Sweetened with manuka cubes
mined from Pharoah’s resting place.

An eye-glass on a microphone stand

sings for its number 24.
