Ivory Ripples

By Leonardo Chung

in the skies of ebony
snap
blankets of the color
of alabaster
drape over the darkness


in empty rooms where
creatures of unknown species
lurk
snap
they scurry away


in places where
the only thing to
touch
is murkiness
and shade
snap
a new vision
comes into view


in minds where only
inky thoughts roam
snap
a ripple of
seditious
ivory words
tumbles over them
