Babble On

slide of thumb

mud mortar succumbs

to the sun

dew-licked from digits that stick

while the sugar misers

with their jointed appendages

dance amidst the sidewalk cracks

as i slack watching their fine line

march and meet

each with a kiss sweet

curious for each other’s

chitinous curves and bends

the ritual of an igneous rise

makes falsehood of burial

inanimate motion in a molten tide


how the dam is damned

by the ricochet of response

from a subtle environment

hungry for a textured symbol

for you my Beloved

i no longer swallow

the cuniform blur

of love’s first words
