curses

We move

And I know that I’ve lost something.

Ghosts of sensation play across the fingers and palm
That cradled it
Carelessly.

Recollection of its scent rides bareback
On the periphery of my senses.

I’m turned around,
In this twisted tunnel
Hunting the light at its end.

Temple

The symbols we create are meaningless.
Until we force life into their vessels

Sometimes
I want to throttle them
And watch our fervence
Fade from their eyes


Gift

The day weeps dusk

I squint against the radiant imminence of nightfall

I fill my reservoir with half-light

I dilate

What gifts from falling shadows?

My slate has been blank for a fortnight and more

I run ragged the night
Shaking echoes from their slumber.
