Symbiote

upstart
humanity
daring to leave its nest,
wings stretched across the galaxy --
molting

voidbound,
in biospheres
--earth in microcosm--
what divergence! evolution
at work
 
closure
nest in shambles
no looking back, child gone
into the unknown -- adult state --
 
free stroked

WC Roberts  WC Roberts's website lives in a mobile home up on Bixby Hill, on land that was once the county dump. The only window looks out on a ragged scarecrow standing in a field of straw and dressed in his own discarded clothes. WC dreams of the desert, of finally getting his first television set, and of ravens. Above all, he writes.
