"Illuminate Yon Woods Primeval"

Across the expanse of yard and fence:
 asphalt, gravel, concrete. A nursing home.
A star wrestles past the lamp post like an oversight.
Here, emergency lights illuminate a chromium bumper.
There, a street signal changes to green.

A helicopter searches for a lone assailant, 
two klieg lights herald a cross-town club. 
One hundred tons of shattered meteors 
commence their sylphidine dusting. 
Countless tiny footprints will be unrecognizable by sun rise.

Dusk cues the fireflies to saunter on stage. 
One at a time and also in pairs - 
stitching together a luminescent scrim that portends tomorrow's mapping.
They will all be asleep by nine.

Glow worms echo patterns from the Maidenhairs. 
Creating rhizomorphs of time in the loam.
Spatial systems of some resolve, 
they'd lead a billion Lovells home.

We join along in our technoluminescence.
We twitter, we flickr, we flash. 
Our expressions are wired into grid-type meshes;
 fractal fireflies.
