Netherward

Netherward 4/29

Go down

Like an ivory root – blind
deaf and breaking

Here –
in the dark
in the wrapping dark
the street lights turn – the
little blue orbs of light become
stepping stones – become
a pathway home

Go down

To the street – bind
your eyes brace yourself
to the night

Press forward
and wrap around the colors
become a part of it
and allow the coolness of it
to make leaves of your fingers
and bud your eyes
