failure and acceptance


every whitewash splash dousing light intense center cube

how they keep you in order to observe

eavesdropping on lonely creatures with company

make a serious commitment to be in love with death

conjure it

the tarnish of a forgotten stone

getting there is lost

let go of your star seed you can’t see the same shadows

and outlines of color of the other

every act of will

every repentance

every movement

is in memory of what never was
