i.
waiting for a sentence
to finish
diminish
an extra limb
stolen from you
a second skin
doled out to you
going spare for mattress stuffing
and you could still feel anything
if you wanted to.

ii.
i'll tuck
this wicked sound
under my pillow
and sleep on it --
in the morning i'll know
exactly what to do.
in the morning you'll know
which muscles to soothe.

iii.
many more terribles
will rise crest break
before i finish this breath
of seafoam wake:
i could be a millenium
lurking inside these parentheses
i could be your equilibrium
hidden within these shuttered cities
i could be a monster
i could be a requiem
i could be a cold star
doomed to swing this pendulum

iv.
i am verdandi
sat with twine
skuld in the dark
spinning new design
an ancient shrine
for me and mine
names knitted
for urdr's past plotline
undying me, myself, and i
then, and now, and
tomorrow's time
