Overlap

Tangled chain gold snake
eats its own tail.

Barroom band
layers one song upon another.

Long ago playground scene
currently projects from my eyes.

Uprooted exiles arrive
summoned to a new world

take over bankrupt farms
turn the landscape in preparation.

Though you do not recognize it
the light from a billion stars

illuminates every daylight footprint
each leaf in the canopy.
