Linking the Dark

Linking the Dark -- Word Clipart

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Foam. The memory of foam. The froth

  of the evolutionary sea and the opaque

 

  treasure of skin winding our skeletons,

  wounding our eyes with their

 

  pure simplicity. Skin. There. Always.

  Skin only skin till a cut flutes

 

  blood outward; till the onioned layers

  become but a riverbed of our own

 

  wanting. Fluidity and change. The path.

  The pulse. The cauldron of sent

 

  energy. The nudge; the pull; the dying

  star giving way to the washed countenance

 

  of love – to the impossible face of

  religion. Skin. Remembered as love; as

 

  the pale linking the dark; as the sea –

  solid – swallowing shore in one

 

  long gulp. Foam. Skin. Blood. The dive

  upward into the abstract dark.
