Flexing muscles

Flexing muscles

Origins, insertions, fibres
The path is widest
Approaching halfway

Yet close to the end
Is only so far along
And extremes distant

So I centralise drift
Anchor shit down
Review all experience

It’s purple and chewy
Stuck between teeth
Making tongues raw

Drifting with such ease
Along the axis of time
Until every turning point

Events yet to happen
Echo into the past
Knocking on notions

Redefining the future
Using original aspects
To nourish novelty.

Reclaiming birth

Reclaiming birth

Buy an inbred newborn
Unloved by the world
Rejected right away

Instill that wonderful joy
Unform negative imprints
That never go away

But on closer inspection
Brittle textures emerge
And khaki flakes flick off

Two portraits emerge
Echoing into the future
Drawing wafts of incense

Yellow success threatened
Red love destroyed
Tails firm between legs

Packaged in soft silks
And tucked in dry wool
Being sent now home

Wave functions branch
Why’s are unanswered
But their trail endless

And their trajectory this
Cloud of possibilities
So tempting to unravel

Life in suspended motion
Animated by imprints
Set in stone by actions.
