in the context of this moment, we're light.

white & containing rainbows. blissfully

bludgeoning the barrier between curse

& verse, craft & vision. the first draft

a purr, the weakest waxing, the deepest

decline into mind. inane snarl sustained

by convalescent carrier: downward

drift, a dynamic shift of shade. crooked

blade caught within a cascading crusade

for climax, vengeance the purist motor:

mocked by vague limpidity as a dirge

purges this cycle of pardon. pardon?

waiving inurement, the wind wages words—

belies concoction—auctions errant sky.
