Your essence, earnestly put forth unto impermanence to weather storms of whetherwhims.
No rhymes for reading; hearing!
Daringly, I – braceless – stood…
Sing silence from the unstaged page, the rhythm riv’ring through.
I switch from now to then; from then to now.
The staggered-stain of iodine…
The dog-violet blends its colour in amongst the scattered sky, as light coursecrashes through the canopy…
“More to see! The child who eats the twisting treat; the gull who rides the unseen surf.”
No ellipses; ellipses…
Breeze breaks in laughter loosed; kuhllainkkinkcnk sothairyugoe! hahihihihihuh hyeh-uh?!
Reincarnate, they live as long as us.
Above the reaching leaves that grow beyond the basket’s edges, dance petals of lilac; of white; of crimson.
Ink-blue; windswept; late-night.
Speak harshly ‘gainst our walls.
Your wealth extends to awe all foreign lands! Your pious worship deeply pleases all our divine hosts, who bless our lives with Ma’at!
