thumb

when memories collapse
upon collision with experience,
it's easy to forget the order
of appearance.

multitudes fall from the sky
like torrential uproar,
and finite intentions
curl up,

parched
due to the abrasive separation
of found
and being found lost- or found out

("desire,
fulfillment and regret;
the future,
the present and the past.")

and shortly
they'll trickle around the edge
-turn abruptly-
and stop.

i'll place the edge
-against aftermath
and furthermore
better judgment-

flush with sight
and sound,
flesh
and breath.

jeezus the way you write.

"i'll place the edge
-against aftermath
and furthermore
better judgment-

flush with sight
and sound,
flesh
and breath."

and always so fluid.
