The Malice of the Moving Now (Original)

in story •  last year

How to uncage unspoken words

that slip the grip of my waking mind; soft sand.

Are these thoughts, like beach footprints, places my soul has walked?

Send me a missive from your edge of space; side of dawn.

wrap up in that message thr prints for your mind

So that I can step where you step

turn where you turn

or jump together.

How to cage the words now passed

that rake at the skin like so much sand paper; rough hands.

Are these scars, like railroad tracks, all the ways I could possibly go?

I'll send you a missive from my side of space; side of dusk.

I will leave you maps of the lines of my mind

so you can trip where I trip

dream what I dream

or skulk together.
