accepted descriptions at look given. anything wanted could come through.
wasted understanding easy as it is plain. beauty in soul alone – abandoned from formless notions unable to take in labels space from designs of will.
impulse imparts plan. blue instinctual prints confined to what fingers attach to evidence yet to find.
jealousy stronger in rain attacks boredom on its own turf / terms – defined.
repressed gratitude calls up siblings. brings back tables turned with faces fairly familiar but voices askew.
friends, acquaintances, feelings too distressed to maintain a name coordinate other reckless claims.
written in/to/wards – insights – misbehaved – misbeheld. insects complicate the holes left constructed/constrained. bugs rise up between words. webs spun in periods catch flies meant to cross gaps.
maggots left behind show sentences for what they are. distraught. distrusted. rot forced out. pushed.
from experience is expelled lesser – form. history – rejected. story – ventured – vented – released.
Ending does not find roots in soils of fear
Though leaves force winds
to such fields
Unrecovering from hail of seasons strong in memory.
if only the fox was on the run.
color fills black and darkening dreams scared off
back to the hutch.
hesitancy’s virtues have no truth when the hunt comes to its end as feast in massacre.
bodies back to the universe. predators full yet unfulfilled in this comfort.
may spirits of those still here rise up, push back, bring voice for those who cannot breathe.
light the skies where tears are done falling – the flood has proven an insufficient lesson again.
each outfit, for school, for work, to live turns one into soldier. life is
each inhale a battle.
ghosts, ancestors, orisha = veterans
sermons, beliefs, gospels held hostage.
