Sepilock Trickery

Gail Ingram 2014

A green-leaf bird
or a green leaf

from the canopy
or a butterfly
brushing apricot petals?
A flower

or the gleam
of a Slow Loris eye

or a giant flying squirrel
climbing like a cat
into the canopy
leaping and gliding
through the thickening sky
and closing his arms?
A magnificent seedhead

or a winged lizard crashing
to the trilling undergrowth,
now a twig?
Or is it a vine/vein/snake
on the seraya tree?
