Fragmented #6







There’s the cycle of another universe

a juxtaposition of everything pulling,

then again, it adds up to another to

–morrow: six planets in one sighting.

The contents of a black sky, like a

hasty rapture, like two-million years

of hope. Everything I’ve longed for,

mute, like a coma. Hope is spherical,

round and round and … all movem

–ents are dreams. Life is self-obses

–sion. Nightmares, hemorrhages of

fear. Bliss: your skin, electric when 

taking you: blessed ocean, holy milk.

The closer you rise: aroma of sea, un

–dulating. Only your wholesomeness, 

never a compromise. The anticipation,

more than the moment: don’t push away,

tomorrow may forget your sacred offering.
