drifting

 

    • knowing not i,
    • not he, not she, not them;
    • the subtle fingers slide along
    • all along
    • the visceral folds of the violent pen—
  •  

    • gutting the reverse print
    • into a grotesque sublimity,
    • the page expresses its oldest doubts
    • in the fallen beauty of the dying form.
  •  

    • gentle are those gracing tips
    • that flow through the lines of flight,
    • bracing the electricity of the touch
    • like half-blind lovers finding themselves
    • in the sharp peaks of brailled poetry.
