bury night

by Dusk Dundler

rock as a god

yr anchor of gravity

centime drop


spine branch back

to well leant porous

trunks -peering darkest life


fluid mass

clock eye spiritus

clandestine white


it is pale

trace line inherent

holding own weight


wave crashes a funnel

cutting sleeping solitudal yoke

from land sight


races cannon sway

now purity of blinding white

longing vestal / naked birth


god does not think

in reason / time is at bay

and you are not a bird
