light moves faster than...

light moves faster than
- - -
sail the seven seas

of sweat and sweetwater

:

bring the salt

i’ll stir it

and spin it

like sugar

swirling in the web

a story spoken

with each breathbreak

in the stillness

i’ll stretch it, suspend it,

solidify it

::

and when it comes

in fleetfoot shadows

time to dissolve,

i will deliver it softly into

the stream

in service of all that is

:::

here,

..

::

all yesteryear,

nothingness of golden histories

not yet plundered

on this vessel

<>

the seasons fall

fast with light

on sinewy fibers

in the darkness

all breaks open

to the rain

cut the rope….
