and I between the cracks




never fallen never fell
fell how far fall so deep
dead bolt dharma
karma wrapped like barbed wire
tight in its coil
tenements and fields
thaw across a concrete mind
and I
between the cracks
and I
between the cracks
imitating daylight
in constant
shadow
never fallen
never fell
fell how far fall so deep
"you will be amazed at how strong
you are
in the scar"
she said
through syntax and circuitry
I am gulf
a living canyon
give me your rivers
so they may be canted
she
oblique uneven
intones a silent
song
never fallen
never fell
fell how far
fall
so deep
I am lips
palate tongue
I see the lock
I see
right through it
how the light
leans in
