Chapter 4|Diamonds



Speak to me in riddles

& all is dew

telling me things

I already knew

what is in that line

some would Say divine

or music to loud

from someone

with windows rolled up.

for the cloud

what is spoken

in your silence

is oppressive

the cage screaming

in the mind

if I were blind

she said

just shoot me

sing me your nursery rhyme

sing loud

out of tune

just sing

fracture the crystal vacuum

your attentive


as she sits


a clock

going off

in her eyes


are in your memory


and a rose

a violin

a moon

let the din roll out.
