Locked Nest

In time-lapse photography
From remote wilderness sites,
You see it for the dragon,
Spiny monster that it is.
It is not milky, it is
Not like a spinal column.
It is the original

Devouring serpent in night,
Poised with its mouth opened wide
Over us, a falling sword
With a black hole in its hilt.
Comprehend mythology
Only when standing under
The eye of our galaxy.
