The sojourners tried designating the world to the darkness to reflect the way I am. Then they created their protections.
When did I unclench their papers?
I was adorned again. That hiddenness made open. The spoils of my old self were dragged to the hilltop.
To be criticized I was percussive, and I refused to hide my dead. Untutored were the examined trees above me. Punctual trees, heavy and ridden by snow’s asymmetry. Perhaps this was how I developed my sensitivity for unsteady measure. No there. This half-silver unbroken palate, blue gradient of midheaven.
Bright was my disappointment to summon what might already be perceived. Grief’s compression & renewal were not wedded to the things I fed you.
