Marcus Liljedahl


dreaming (my life) the crevice in an ancient vault widens

empty rooms anchored in a mirage of blue bells

between distance and closeness the language of birds

lighthouse leaving a hole of illumination

stone angels sweet oblivion dripping from their lips

as a blank slate I stagger (and fall) into the white sun
