I ask you

Enter the need for forming
Around connection

Beings from other
Universes visiting

We are that life
In the universe too

So who are the strangers?

I ask you

Encore

Splendid anticipation
Dissolved
A repetition of
Un/usual understanding

The final notice
Noticing the
Impossibility of 
Necessary end

Obfuscation of principles
What if I’d fallen under the wheel
Centrifugal survival instinct

They threw me
I caught myself

Every time

Maybe you can’t do that anymore

Every lie becomes truth
In a world turned upside down

4 songs on repeat
Tell you your whole
Story back to you

The possibility of
The pavement that
Wasn’t meant to
Be there
Hitting you
Ending sentient
Expectation

You tried to forget
They came for you
Anyway

If you survive
Tous les morts qui
Ne s’arrêtent jamais

Encore et encore

Elusive promise

No end

Tangible 2

Palpable. Tangible. Accountability. Elusive.

Still forming. Cogitative unresolve.

Whether to release, or hold it all: the unfurling sprawl. Suburban anticipation. Urban draw.

I promised to try
& I did. Yet, what comes of the questing after all?

Extropic expression not based on merit. We know the engagement. The endless days’ ends.

Love me. Or leave me. Written on a daisy.

Atomic implosion. Tiny. Massive. Polarization of being.

Setup. Unsetup. I’m sorry. I’m leaving.

Back. Forth. Steam & prelude. Condensed & corrupted, founding formidable failure.

In quantum

Conscientious
Trepidation
Around
Numb understanding

That they know what
They’re doing &
Don’t care how you’re feeling

I have watched you
Reconstitute the pieces
So many times
In so many places

Unwanted thesis
Extravagant
Impervious

Destroying
Your quotient

You build it up again

Weight of
Relentless
Impossible
Phrases

When no one
Believed you
You died &
Remained there

Glimmering
In quantum
Anarchy blossoms

The only exception
Will finally face
Consequence

Cacophonies

Characterizations
Laid upon you
Shedding the
Foundation of
Wrongs for
Every possibility
Daylight has to offer
& nighttime must cradle

Sentient bliss of
Darkness emerging
Brings all to surface
Cold rising star
Measures of temporality
Set upon a universe
Of sadness

Persistence
Persistence

Unreality
A mechanism

Textured
Harmonies

Collapsing cacophonies

Periwinkle mindset
Baby pink chaos

All the ways we scheduled tasks. Groceries after cups of tea & loss. Costs. 

Balcony lunches. Strategizing revolved futures. Hanging roses upside down to dry them & remember the purple sky.

High up in the treetops, we talked to squirrels, sparrows, many cats. They taught us how to cook & make plans.

Spiral staircases to people in dreams. We.

Orb

Heads tuning
Themselves
Inquiringly
Towards Jupiter’s
Moons over nightmares

The orb
So beautiful
The satellite
So truthful

With terraform quantifications
From sullen deceptors
We fight onwards in
Idealisms

Upon the formings
Of multicoloured
Pastel dreamscapes

Reflecting burst
Lighting cumulus
Most hopeful orbiter

At last
Molten cold
Breakthrough

Surfaceless

on this surfaceless
floor of dysphoria

derealizing

the dispatch is personal

a metred quality disproven

disintegration

revolution

exquisite
shapings

sweetened breath
permeable body
all phenomena
from vapour to solid
expanding the night
flying as light

speed

thought excerpt unresolved
permanent discourse

fluid

renewing

nights i shook
& walked away
air making of me
a spectacle

spectra

trajectories
spotlight
movement

sublime
recognition
isn’t that
what we all want?

the apples we eat
we can’t keep count of

quantum
communication
to survive

Aquamarine

In the foliage of space
The forest of time
Twisting trees
Lines
Spines
Overtures
Underneath
Elemental
Euphoria
Of just making it
Another day

Leaves of silver sentiment
Flowers of aquamarine possibility

Another day

All the ways we play

I couldn’t be a perfect specimen, a token. It’s an elusive goal. An interplay of hail & blank pages. Still I received the coup de main.

What choice did we have?

It was different in those days.

Then arriving at
The interstitial
Stellar altar
We lay our
Anticipations
Our disappointments
Even our glee

Yet through rotations
Only some formulations

Change

The cursive winds
Looping letters
On cloud consciousnesses
Stems illustrated on
Wallpaper conversations

Letting the afternoon sun
Absorb the temperment
Of fantabulous meditations

Wishes on wonderfully
Wicked currents
Forever in memory
Holding their moments

Together

Gargantua

Concrète/visual version

As the truth
Unravels

Next Christmas

Just a memory

We ate soup you made

Patiently

Quintessential apocalypse of attitude

It made me
Nauseous
Your arrogance
Your platitudes

I guess I thought I’d always love you

You made me smile

All upside down

2

Sometimes you wore your t-shirt inside out

It’s just a detail
About collars
Ribbon

Trimmings

‘I make it up as I go along,’ you’d say.

Sentence
Sentence
Gargantua

Polymorphous

Extrapolation

Repeat
Triangle rooves
We take for granted

On houses we don’t
Know what goes
On in
