you tell me

Posted to Action Poetry




you tell me how this
blue has become
the essence for you

how you smoothe your zones
of knelled darkness
while you dream
that you do not dream

how you reinvent yourself
while you heave above
the undeciphered event
in the rubble of light
on the other side of
the gaping eye

how you walk out from language
as air wanders far from home
spat out by the burning
fever in your lungs

how you have come
from nowhere

how you have arrived

how you pulse
in the vermillion breath
of unquenchable hope
in prayer-grown bed

how you become the dead
of another life than yours

how you drink the frail dawn

how you are

you
