The Reading Into a Gathering

Littered as letters of past that speak sin in tatters, meeded in matters mute

Like love lived once again in fine figures; the dune to journey full moon

Drawn on a paperboat, in the ocean, on a mirror, a pawned pile limbers

Sound waving past the ears a memory – a gutted trail of emancipation

Whirls a vacancy that smiles across in ink, gleaming in its attire – the gloom

Black in woven worry, blue within the starry, sit-staring, blaze-gazing zephyr

To outlive the mercurial life, it aroused, and lead a mock cry bringing a break in ring

In the crystal sling hanging a hair width farther than the compass that is wired within

Lurking over the lore – untied and in flight, a lark, lit, devoid of sleep, finds some time

To manaeuver through, across the words, into the satire that harks and swings

The goaded flutter, the Sunday glitter – marooned moon in the backwaters

Soon pariah, seeks a medallion, to travel in beads and in blossoms

Nook and niche, curve and crib, cured of curses, enchanted with tresses

Triple crippled by the fiery fumes, lets go into a tricky trickle of rough tunes

Garbed in ghouls’ gears, undone with spikes in the rapture’s found ashore

Whistles into the wayward view a song sung sitting through the melancholy mound

Maraunding past the pair to seek a new fortune, of gullies desiccating

Over the riverbed found bowing a boat to bury the beacons

It is evening shaking off mirage of the fleeting fear turned demon

From the bowers of trusted trees and lavenders’ scream can heard

A fume favoured in fine regimen with a soon to loom tune hither

Travels the time, trickles the hair, leaving a scent to renew a blank stare

Guessing dire into the affair of bloom, reign the fiends in their winds agoof

Blare-bare a guard, a jutted rhythm reading into ride an awe and a wreck
