Time that flows--eye-drawn skies


A cryptic tryptich

Your life that goes by,

That flows


Unbalanced, strange—

Ephemeral-


Shadow,

who dresses in shadow

Not knowing mourning,

Nor who I am


No one whispers death—

No one even knows--

Knows no one

that I am--

even I

---------------

Happenings never happening,

Names changed in secret


Time--

Of the shadow partner


That goes by, that flows—

Actions odd, that unfold—


Whisper in mystery,

Torture torturers' twins


Time--

Of the empty room


Disfiguring depths,

Distant scars—

-------------------------

Zero moments,

Illustrating a mouth--

Opening

An O


Eyes drawing lines

Calm a heavy sky


Aerial poems

Photograph a hand

Inventing

A day


Time- -

Of the lucid eyes


Deciphering dusts,

Dimming names—


Encrypted lives--

Interpreting a death,

Detecting

A birth


Time, your life—

That goes by,

That flows


Shadows, lines—

That draw eyes,

That lift


Time—

Of the eye-drawn skies


That flow--
