Spring Explosive

Spring Explosive
*after Dalí, and Eiseley

For a frost, offspring 
of a sunrise is corrosive, 
while turmoil of a kernel beautifies 
to violence. A chrysalis 

Liquefies cracks to knives,
striking psychedelic petals. Burning
dyes intertwine a pulsing
green that drives the season

To kinesis. Inside a pod, 
an upthrust grasps what thrives, 
spuming: fruit and flower 
subsume an epoch. Storming

Chlorophyll balms the crust
of unclothed globe. Colossal 
palms warm to holding 
life, divining: into form.
