you rap on my sternum
the call        plop    plops
bereft
initial me pandora's box
delete
rekindle the iron
lilts tase my reed bones
cicatrix heals like second breath
you know i've always been

                                            alone
lips scrubbing my skin
soil is always soil
in atom i am soiled
single?
idle to be with midnight
dark is pen to the sun
i am fountain ; you are flame
& those mottles birth still requiems

thrusting latticed fingers
before filament's iris
adorning shadows with
                    
                silhouettes

a dumb         a still         a puppet
cursoring the lid's retreat
around the celadon jar
