Definitions do the work of being for us


Eyes read

the light that makes the air

that carries the words

upon breaths

that resting within our mouths

swallowed the golden orbs

sprung from the crenulated earth

a multitudinous line

where the sun rubs life

from a stillborn babe

into the deviled folding

in the perfect pace

at differing distance

all a part

and apart seeming

oh! oh! oh!

So many pains are wrapped upon

the beautiful origami

and we stand ready

with shears in hand

to test ourselves for right
