Ejections, of motion
As inflections, of might
Disconnects –
Their intersections
As a reflection –
Of light.

We see the terror
We feel its pain
We see the horrid
Hiding –
Within its miserable shame.

We see the wicked
And take its blame
As we are the punishment
Striking –
Behind its dust defined flame.

Moving –
Through a motion
Floating, forever, free
An endless old reaction
To the effect,
Of cause
We see.

Angle right visions
Curve –
Through the night
Sending whispers of color
To conserve –
It’s arc light.

A delicate, dark existence
Determined, to breakthrough
Drapes, its deep appearance
Within a death throw –
Of true.

Pause, just a moment
For that junction, of true
Knowing, what you see
Is that moment, for you

Take, a shallow breath
And closely listen, to me
As my words, are the question
That tells me, what you see

Hark, my cold words
Within the symbols, I write
Where that sliver, of a mind
Becomes the shadow, of light

The concepts, that I see
And the visions, I show
Are still, not quite here
And neither real, nor unknown.

Because we could not stop to die
Death did not stop for me;
The stars hold true a measured cloak
Of pure passivity.

We slowly wake, and see a truth
That makes a stark reveal;
That time and prescience cannot hide
Our raw, mortality.

Starscape, fireflies
Bursting, to fight
Reaps, a core chaos
While burning, their night.

A complex, interaction
Explodes and upheaves
By embedding,
An abstraction
In an h-Alpha,
Re-weave.

For sulphur atoms
Of blue, then green
Announce their present
Nighttime stream
While skyscape mansions
Forever dream
Of a silence, shouted
By a sight, extreme.
