the fur of the earth

The fur of the earth,
Gold in open-land sun,
Rises in amber tufts,
Climbs the rolling hillsides
In steady-cresting waves,
Reaching just high enough;
And as far as eye can vise.

Fall, suspended

Bright red
Sunlit
Flighted
Flitted
By wind
Suspend-
                ed
Mid-grid
A glimpsed
Second
Unbid
Dead-limp
Descend-

Railride

An open expanse of flat, grey-mirroring water, mimicking its sky on high.
A ruined shipwreck rising above the tide, grimly shallow waters to remind.
Wisps of drifting fog ghost over crisping leaves, autumning in their time.
The tide flat stretching broken mud-grasslands and streams throughout that wind.
The drone of the train singing, rolling along the gentle, coastal course it rides.

Childlike / Finish

You can be child-like-I,
Feeling all things tremendously.

You can be deadened inside;
Nothing moves you stupendously.

You can seek middle-just-right,
Finding extremes horrendously.

You'll find things catching your eye,
Catching them the sole aim you'll see.

You could live dreams all your life,
Drifting always pretend to sleep.

You may balance edge-of-knife,
Staying upright defies all feats.

You might rather rush the line,
Finding death at the end a treat.

One wing, no flight

Moth wing,
Just one
Flaps round
On ground
Up walls
In jaws
Of ant
Straight line
Sheer might
No grace
Of flight
Spun round
Bright lights

Escape

Too much
Gravity:
So my impulses,
Needs
—unserious, emotional, with difficulties—
Unfreed,
Do not all achieve
Escape 
Velocity

Ready, Set, Wait

Sitting,
Waiting,
Ready to go.
Hearing the rain,
Possibilities beckon:
Momentarily on hold.

Beat Drop in Slamdangle

Afore headslam
Dropped walkered
Kneeling clash from
Monkey bar-hangup
Not strong enough
To then string grip
Dangling, rattled my
Cage fell upon,
Pact impounding
Beat of the heart
On flamed-in bones
Unduly fear-entered

Neck, Eyes, Fingers, Heart

Dangling, enchanting, catching
Eye,
Necklace:
His.

Eying, plying—trying?
Shy?
Nearness:
Hers.

Touching, nudging, brushing
By:
Fingers,
Theirs.

Wond'ring, hungry, thund'ring
High,
Heartbeat:
Whose?

Mine?

Rave

Downforest apath slipped:
Stranger I, what cross's pathed?
Dimming mosqueness toe danced in,
'ad paused, full beauty-flowers to mire,
To pre-friend new dualship
And sweetnesses in a nature-share
