there is no end to my
and the wind does blow
I see in the sun
and the green is never
my soul weeps with so much

tarnish my dream-stained

What would it take to do the things I think. to be in reality what I am in thought. to glide as the ether that floats in my head, to always do a thing I’d wish I’d done if I were dead. To remember that I don’t know, but birds do fly.

Purple pinpricks along the spine, the red began to wonder about that strange little gland. why was it there? what was it for? trickling in for pursuit of fact, it was found to be a home. the red laid down in drapery fashion and hummed to a dull mellow lull.
