Those Plucky Ambiguities

An ambiguity is a funny truism,
in that its deconvolution is eloquently unknowable.
Just study this: What lives on pablum,

can't smell color, evades horizons,
could win a plurality of the unpopular votes,
and according to a spy on Earth,

you usually see it playing baseball with real orioles?
And by the way, when is an enigma not enigmatic?
When it's a riddle.

Long Visit Promised

A peculiar justification for the spread of plant species:
It's sightseeing.
They changed their last islands long ago,

in the Darwin of their migrating years.
When they controlled the ground they could go anywhere
and be greeted as sisters.

Gushing down between highland meadows,
tourist plants happened upon the capital
and at last set roots in their busy ancestral soil.

Brilliant Venus is still with us.

The High Ground

Apparently, according to astrobiologists, we stink.
Blame the temperatures.
Actually, we persist,

and think up plans for habitable forms.
We made our camp in a spectrum of gears,
the absolute sun that we all live to study,

and projected an unlikely city
that could be almost right.
Perhaps, we think, the experts are coming.

Episode of Alienation

He is remembered a villain.
A fresh body, he is traveling by soul
to board his memory.

Sepia-toned films cut his mind—
toxic remedies portraying residues of human reason:
A man, but titan, he ate tormented hearts.

He is vermin, the monstrous dark a pesticide—
an ambiguously familiar comrade
transformed to fate.

Sometimes massive crews emerge out of the ground
or crawl on the roads with innocent projects.
There are no cicada writings;

hiding in the forest like a loud brush
or a note scribbled on the Atlantic,
and their distinct structures of 13 on 17.
