exhaling; release-glimmer then breaking through the midnight surface.

Liquid births pulsing tides in the shallow waters;
i develop a photograph. The tray is rocked back and forth like
a lullaby tempting chemical matter to press and spill into life.


Liquid births pulsing tides in the shallow waters;
even my dreams are colonised. i can only tremor
a lullaby; tempting chemical matter to press and spill into life.
i will never be the same hereafter.


i grow, i quieten,
i begin collecting.
