greedily unbends our ground space.
is undamaged by glass spirit.
this white crack, wiping lips.
violation is a wrinkled circus.
basins, legato lawns, decomposure worn.
rain harpoons our cheeks.
twiggy offspring, spitfires splash us.
with the top off!
of childhood, the dangerous unknowing.
worms in mulch are ignoramuses, there’s no elegant search.
our views, those botanic winters.
hangars, unoccupied, patrol of cobwebs.
the invitation of jade grass and feeling wobbly.
slothfulness we get near the music.
table, colours of bop fight for supremacy.
of tea collect, fatigued blood-brown fortunes.
the revolution of eyes, angles of sun.
the noise of ultramarine, a shade with generosity.
flames, day’s in-breathing.
our deeper skins, affinities with ions.
aphids, autopsies, impressive steps.
pastel horizon is a cover-up for impatience.
frost travels the cycle between.
the shape it has formed.
luminous hours to penetrate identity.
daily paper is our buy-back, a cocktail of discretions.
like cellophane at the surface of evening.
sign is the sky, that it lowers night.
abyss is indigo, we circle its answer from memory.
from dirt to effort, experiment with deltas.
the effects have been cancelled.
to midnight and the lower surfaces!
