“I Think Myself A Time-Traveller &”

By Kellie Diodato


A bird—a finch—

invisible in flight,

fiery and agaze

advanced alliances,

leading Fibonacci

out to fly.


Sweeping Pisa,

stream to centre-city,

men who achieved

saw an ancient

consonant—risky, Archimedes…


An innocent ideology

from a perimeter. Dilated,

a cervix abounding

and necessary—

Aphrodite arc.


Caution, finch.

A time-travel* being;

guardian to Archimedes….
