lonely times,

the softer things,

clouds over clouds

like I am a desperate mass

of water &

 

there is a larger

phenomenon

which circumscribes

joy,

 

understanding

for a moment

before, again,

the puffs dissipate,

 

change, I’m not

looking for pathos, I just

no longer

look out for

them

 

(angels).
