about

(...)


the undergrowth is restless
the seer has read the entrails of the lie :
one, five, ten, seventeen -
the sequence will unfold

precarious roots will twine upwards
swirling, sizzling, unwavering
stifling stone-deaf walls into crystalline dust

transforming cold symbols into mutual aid
as the slanted orange rain bows to the inevitable :
the empire is tired
its armour weak


after black blocks, red zones and white lies
a sparrow will emerge from this wound
tearing away the masks of consent, separating

substance and value
hope and distrust
viscera and illuminated skin


I approach the shadow
And make the cut


(...)
