Aglow in the Garden

Aglow in the Garden

Who are we, but sparks on the water fading lanterns dipped in light the wall curves around the garden. at its base, stones where they sat contemplating ritual smoke we are not here we are dispersing the lanterns are aglow in my eyes but I cannot see clearly in between where the darkness gathers, night bunching its skirts as a dancer spinning I weave nets in the garden i weave days into sound we are aglow in the garden we are silver light shed softly upon the ground

My heart can take no more than a fragile dose, enough to firm

Well practiced masters....

Well practiced masters....

we are shards of ourselves splitting wood, contradictions unnamed places dark inertia confident ignorance and the illusion of peace we are well practiced masters of laughter holes and homelands unasked, unquestioned valued only in sums of love which win us nothing no trade for extra minutes no moments reclaimed no happiness earned
