Doggeral


These fragments have been rattling about in my mind for a few days. If I write them down, perhaps they will turn to clay. “Draft” status, please; comments are still welcome.

 

Behold, I am become

Night.

Wrap surfaces 

Like cashmere:

Stars gitter,

Announce themselves in

Creases of touch.

 

Rolling red lights howl

Terrors awake and dreamt.

Sounds buffer;

Exclamations exhale.

I render warmth in the

Softness of blindness.

I render objects vivid.

Sight unavoidable:

Either my all-nothing is everywhere,

Or there is substance.

Person, structure, reflection, sigh

Forge my negative spaces.

They preen my darkness.

Dissonance creating 

Light.
