as he opened his eyes
there they were –
the fears and the failures
waiting for a moment of brightness
scratching the wounds open –
then letting go.
holding hands with a new sister
trying to become quiet –
don’t apologize for being free.
head of a list / burning passion
in between dreams:
dancing before his statue –
impossible to oversleep.
[dry me a river]
the black dog
[who comes paddling along the river]
[my] wrecks – engulfed in the landscape.
– an approach from behind
into the characters’ necks.
like a temple –
it could certainly grant one of our most cherished desires –
the unspeakable horrors within.
