Barriers

rough, slivered bars

run parallel loops

around my life

stockade and picket, 

linked barriers

the same material 

as my heart,

carbon forged 

in star bellies.

.

in and out

are illusions

within the quantum mist.

and your love

billows through

the cracks

and open spaces

brushing the fields,

growing my stems 

sturdy.

.

the round swell

of a clay vessel

is permeated

by the oil

it contains,

unified

in the hollows.

its perfume

cannot be quoined.

and distance 

and difference

are a scintillating

mirage.
