Veil Shift Reveal
stretch, open, release, proceed
feet spread forward, eyes seized flutter
temporal shift casts and drifts, torrents
take shape as awe
Lie awake to think beyond context,
inklings from pixie dust long infiltrate
formless, bright, twinkling like a
retinal code, like imprints of mystics’ art
Stories with twists to expose different paths
Songs that entwine backbrains, insist
we all dance one foot, one mind, one goal
or another
Face off, blinded, emit sonic rays as walls
so steep, so hard, so badly soiled
In quiet dark before twilight before time
vagrants paint with bloodied fingers, examine
interstice and flow
Slowly, as viscous waste, then quicker pick up
of pace, then light takes hold,  caresses gentle
as a kiss of friendly intent
Will you let it in?  Will you let your vision bend,
extend, begin?
