You draw an arrow straight home to me, sparrow,
my train can run parralell, too
At least part of the beauty of a map traced in 2-D is clear
to the studious few
And peace comes to the mathematic synthetic core, if I
just keep on walking, I’ll arrive at your door, maybe tomorrow
while the iron is still warm

I can take half of the total times laughed off and scoffed at
I’ve stashed them all down
And pay with their currency, the four lives in front of me, the rest
I can barter with sound, and what’s
left in my coat pockets, for dinner we’ll share. And
deaf blind and penniless, happy, stiff, scared of tomorrow
and these things that I’ve bought

Difference difference difference difference between

Deference, reverence, sever its shoots on the bean

Sanity, brevity, bravery, levity— these are the virtues
are any restored or recorded or
pored over once the romance of it leaves?

Punch drunk and loaded, the black star imploded so
why does the birthday girl sigh?
Solace in energy and collective synnergy,
I’ve robbed
the guardians

How many timbres can soothe me assured as completely as one breath and nary a word will tomorrow? Maybe none.

This is the noise from the inside of a root. ... more
