Watercolors in the human weathering
The luxuriant wetness of selves disintegrating
The cellar paint dissolving into a new wave
The sound of music fills the subterranean cave.
Dripping, drawing patterns on the walls.
Vast collections of familiar discord,
various associations of punishment and reward
soon lower their coffins under the floor boards.
The memories house
a soundtrack to the first time you sensed fear,
it attacked your senses with a lid shutting kind of creaking,
<releasing a chill down the spine.
You didn’t realize at the time
the significance of this feeling.
Fingers roam cool porcelain
another layer of skin
to gaze at everything
through the mosaic past.
It starts with a flash
a moving flesh of light
shapes surface with the parting aperture
that watch the other blur
into a double exposure.
The vague trace of these markings
linger under the branches
of the banyan veranda.
Scents linked to memory
rooted in nostalgia.
All the expressions made of tears
pulled apart as opposed to crying
like the Velvets with colors
running through disparate images
appearing as fodder
to the interpretor
of the endlessly turning
large screen projector.
Going backwards through the frames
through portals and parallels
the process remains the same.
The self tries to relate to the whole
subject to paradox
reason obscuring the goal
like fog in a forest
and you’re lost again and again.
A film over the eyes strained
to work thin sheets
stained by abstraction
absorbing the experience
though it lacks protection
from cracks that fracture the dream
unbound manuscripts of wind
scattering the scene
you were taught to repeat
again and again.
From the roots you unfold scrolls
in the sleepy knolls of an idle mind.
It controlls the reels and the fiction.
With vast strokes
it creates worlds by hand
words that mime
the sound of the ocean
courting the sand of the shoreline.
Silhouettes of residual spray
in the ecstacy of its art.
That which is never fully attained,
captured nor explained,
motions to bear witness
to the most transient of masterpieces.
