That goes by, that flows--eye-drawn skies


A cryptic tryptich



Your life that goes by,

That flows



Unbalanced, strange—

Ephemeral-



Shadow,

who dresses in shadow



Not knowing mourning,

Nor who I am



No one whispers death—

No one even knows--



Knows no one

that I am--

even I



---------------



Happenings never happening,

Names changed in secret



Time--

Of the shadow partner



That goes by, that flows—

Actions odd, that unfold—



Whisper in mystery,

Torture torturers' twins



Time--

Of the empty room



Disfiguring depths,

Distant scars—



-------------------------

Zero moments,

Illustrating a mouth--

Opening

An O



Eyes drawing lines

Calm a heavy sky



Aerial poems

Photographing a hand

Inventing

A day



Time- -

Of the lucid eyes



Deciphering dust,

Dimming names—



Encrypting lives--

Interpreting a death,

Detecting

A birth



Time, your life—

That goes by,

That flows



Shadows, lines—

That draw eyes,

That lift



Time—

Of the eye drawn skies



That flow--
