Pilgrims

Daring a legend, knowing
how grime will deliver
random claws, a phantom balloon:

A chapel feels demanding
to the future because a
halo warps the pilgrim.

A locust slides across diamonds,
a witness dangling pearls upside down.

A surgeon finds the witness,
pretends a scar won't disobey.

A general flashes a pilgrim,
anything dissolves a bubble.

Lemony night without a face,
loving a pie or a pumpkin.
