 In Between

 

Between the doorjambsI sense right becomes left,what a silly theft,gate slamming against battering rams. Between twilight and morningI hear thoughts perish,beaten by an iron clock in rapid vanish,counting dreams drafted with foggy rotring.

 

Between the day’s bus and the soul’s racks

the stone sharpens for tomorrow,S@p$n]a graveyard, bread, wine, no sorrow,on asphalt knitted by catterpillar tracks. Between spy and preyspectacles trigger atopic allergy,lenses fire one thousand bullets – dichotomy –,the azure look is about to decay. Between door and cross, on the right,eyes once more steal from Vorone] blue mercy,the stonemason still carves the day’s effigy,while dusty foam puffs spirals into the height. The aorta arch,the peony bread,the mind’s vowels,the lens focus,the cross nail –everythingpassesaway
