a bleached bone whale canoe
woke from crossing the sky
to find itself
buried beneath the sand

the hills were ruined
cathedral trees gone
leaving only burnt bones in the soil

like everything else unfeeling
it cannot harness memory

the anthropomorphic entity
always there
but never more
than a concept

so you wear needles
along your inner thighs
that walking
you bleed

an olive branch bridge across
the sea
hear it snap
just like a dove's neck

a peace symbol
a proverb
the solemn psalm

never sung

but syllables blossom
with the voice of the bone whale
bridge
boat
bargain

harmonizing baleen with stained glass

orphaned tears of the summer
falling across your barren back
I'd cleanse you this one time
kissing away the dust

till you were innocent of time
your eyes
filaments of whale marrow

healing
harbinger
harrowing
harlequin

and your body merges
with the shifting of cloud
calamity
sand
and shift

swiftly the bone becomes a limb
the motion of fingers

from index to palm
.

Thank you for your comment. The sort of madness that I embrace isn't meant to be understood, it's meant to be appreciated. My mind is an explosion, a fury of incomprehensible images...

I just cant help but appriate the way you describe things, i know im not supossed to understand, but in an underlining way i kind of do, like i said in my own perspective, you work persives soemthing that only some people can interpertate by there own will. I like it like i said...
