“A poesis memoir of the vibrating I Am presence”

uncontrolled tongues

performing rarities

 

ovation decrees

 

I appreciate your directness

oh anechoic ace

 

dump somnambulist powder

all over the childhood orchard

 

in the city I ferment

 

I wished some edge to meet me

for

true questions

the quasar in which elliptical opera takes

 

 

trust your tryst

a beauty tracker is a translator
