                    When

   you

                                            are 

                                   seated I



                  hear a rhythm of

       represented mores: you are alone
in the freedom wearing your biology in

    open-handed language: I’m

listening, never

                                             dis

-jointed 
or
alive near absence and
the silence awakening me to an empty gaze until

hearing your shape intertwine with morning’s best and
unobstructed moment

     Clouds
  upon a distant proclamation, hearing
gradated versions of gray
                                       explain

                        painful renditions of insinuated,
reflectional articulations

                   of

         why darkness is penetrating fear and midday light

                               is what

   transcribes itself into an echoing fruition of privilege and

                                                           personal, unimpeded
                             discovery

                 —and this is
     how distance becomes human—:

            fear of difference
       of a particular peculiarity etched

                                                   and handmade by perspectives other
                   than that of the mirror’s true / hidden,

                         praising

         patois

  This window
 watching what I’m
      waiting within: silence
   
                   solace

                                                certain

sameness paradigms as

the child growing and

pulling emotions from what

was distant prior to the push

of birth’s consistent and unaware

elation

Stumbled inward         the 
  aggregations’ 
 causal formations in
-troduce synonyms for what
   breathes well and in
devoted demonstrations. 

Birthed, these
  ornaments hold hallowed interpretations.
 Breathed in what holds exterior breaths.
     Here, nothing broken or
    bereft             for only
            solitude holds these qualities
        in the quiet
  hand of silence’s altruistic

                                             certainties

  Greetings from multilingual angles
      from
    those watching and
             interpreting devotion.

This is where moths
  rotate and bend
 curls into intertwined meaning

     among what watches and
   designs ornamental absence

  When
              leaning

         learn what the language of angles      moves
    your isolated emblems toward.  What of
                   delving deserves
                           uninterrupted
           raptures and unobstructed
     knowledge as reflection and promise to
               interpret 

                                                  sustained


           reinvention

    How this language
  stays

                   still     stilled by missed
        rhythms of
        
                                    an overarching

architectural absence¬


Of sound and
     Of devoted clarity
  missing since the body bends to acclimate
                        to
               trends and the circular warmth 
    of sameself reflections

finding what i means in a lost we accumulation

of

purposeful and undeniable devotion to

insinuated freedoms

  Furthering devotion to
 for
    a self relevant though death
   could be/is

          nearer now
      than
   when
                                   earlier shapes contained

                             purpose toward embracing emblems of angles’ various

                                                               momentums into a

                desirous

                                             comprehension
