there is movement, even in the stagnation of apathy, 
and the ghosts
of the self just pile until gravity forces a
plunging into wakefulness

hitching a ride on the backs of tears poured down in unconscious moan, lingering 
in travels between the sleep and the wake.
lingering in these little vibrations left unguided in the air, a misty hover
of august heat trapped between
forgotten birth and the ineluctable autumn.


a trembling hand raises to wipe the perspiration, beading, 
sliding and blending down the wave of
exertion to understand. to not understand.  to forget. 
to hold on to for precious seconds more.

where has it gone? desperate fingers claw 
down the throat to stave off choking. a breath-way clogged by 
this unyielding traffic of cells,                  tumbling
sleep after sleep and over and under one another, as
we cease to be who we are.    


just former imitations
buried in the dirt and scattered across the years and places 
of our
constant progression.

and, yet, they're just fragile memory grains, really.  
clinging hands to form a beach of cohesion of sense
in the senseless            makeshift box of bones and skin
and humanity's struggle for survival.

propelling the need to be fed, watered, fulfilled
feeding upon itself.                                 just once more, as ever.


a play of intangible feelings that such a memory should write on paper:

//scenes of people brushing the electric nerves of hollowed upper arms.  satin skin 
sliding past as they breathe and swallow and absorb these other selves.
carried in gentle breezes that find the lungs//


is there such an idea like that of the concrete? of ever swirling earth roads, picked up and flowing round the feet
in running adventure, barely held in place between the roots on either side of yesterday's and tomorrow's forest...

modernly paved over in human attempt to feel reality with the fingers. 
but the timeless elements beat down and break and knead fists down the path until
sleep pulls us under, yet again... 
eyes closed in a face under the sea.

 sleeveless shirt, by jeannelefrancois

 somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
 any experience, your eyes have their silence:
 in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
 or which i cannot touch because they are too near

 your slightest look easily will unclose me
 though i have closed myself as fingers,
 you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
 (touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose

 or if your wish be to close me, i and
 my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
 as when the heart of this flower imagines
 the snow carefully everywhere descending;

 nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
 the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
 compels me with the colour of its countries,
 rendering death and forever with each breathing

 (i do not know what it is about you that closes
 and opens; only something in me understands
 the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
 nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

saturday shopping list, may 19th...

vintage innocence day dress small medium handmade, from rubychicboutique

"we have lost even this twilight.
no one saw us this evening hand in hand
while the blue night dropped on the world.

i have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.

sometimes a piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand.

i remembered you with my soul clenched
in that sadness of mine that you know.

where were you then?
who else was there?
saying what?
why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away?

the book fell that always closed at twilight
and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.

always, always you recede through the evenings
toward the twilight erasing statues."

~ 'clenched soul', pablo neruda
