    dotsheavy with forgetful sleep dots

    tell me everything in mirrors;
    that our enemies,
    laden with much practical jewelery
    all our own,
    that i can step off into the sea air
    on that beach that we found;
    the crab that we rescued once
    & set off into another shoreline.
    let me hear your voice
    ringing like dead frequencies
    in my inmost ear.

    bury me just above the horizon,
    just above the dinosaur clouds,
    just below the broken interiors
    of dreaming.
    lay on my tongue,
    stretch out like hell-fire,
    like the ice that turns to copper
    amongst the streetlights
    of our missing cities.

    if i breathe just long enough
    i might describe the 5th season,
    the unbroken moon
    heavy with forgetful sleep,
    heavy with sickness
    from the motion of its waning beak,
    birthing the ocean
    like another ocean birthed it.
    it takes on female forms
    in empty space where we lose it.

    our minds finish
    what our lips lack in speech
    the evolution of the spirit
    is to fold,
    as the brain does,
    into new versions of the light.
    hold your head up high.
    the next few seconds
    will leave you hanging:
    the plot of the world
    is to diffuse into amber.
    i have these hands,
    i have these eyes
    & i'm waiting...

      I remember this one, I think I read after 'the season of wayward bees'

    the beginning in fantastic, the kind of poetic gibberish you know holds something spectacular.

    the amber in this is rust? life rust/disillusionment

    perhaps too many 'that,' I understand it is used in different and appropriate ways, still trying to break the spell and offer something without only smudging up the paint--
