1.

stutter
stutter

change core
there are
these dreams
which come to me
more truth
than fiction
that my tragedy

tore portrait
to shreds

ignite tempest
in garden
sleep

sing to spectres

blindness cure
believe

immutable fact

born
in shallow grave
amongst wildflowers

flood comes
storm begins

sing to spectres

2.

tear apart torso
of this & that
animal or beast

3.

shoot depth
into depth

locked in luminescence

breathe branches
broken

twigs

palpitations pierce
& ignite

4.

pretend to stay
silent & still

watch carefully how

dawn rots

5.

fury silent
as scream
centred in stomach

circumstances cruel
concise

begin
to be beast
burn

sheets of skin

secret to stone

6.

créatures come
patient
prudent

birds
fly over flesh
fields

turn wing
towards

totem

7.

deliberate

divine
in manner

matter burns

weave wings
now

under stress

suspend silhouettes
sewn with skin

knot's
night

8.

ring bells
until it breaks

heart

9.

do
job of job

sort
stones in sorrow
there is
no
other
way of weeping

10.

memory
collides with stars

altering axis
of abyss
simple truth

come after storm
set facts straight

straight to hell
hear heartbeat
gouges
dance

from flesh's
frame

exploration unnameable

method
no consolation
