making awesome journeys in
between each pensive step
must rate with raking ashes –

awakening in gaps displacing
scenes of worldly sequences
so real less causal temporality

and placement of the feet leaves
no relief from piercing images
complete arcane ascendency

they’re only memories you try
to say, with no intent discrete
except their utter vacancy

so prise those feet apart and
rise above despair suspended
in the gloom erasing you

invasive moods like these
consume redacted years to
merely cross the room
