Spring Rain: An Epilogue

The seasons, the rickshaws go color-blind.

A lot of reasons are making the chickens

persevere in the depths of their emotional

hibernation. They capitalize and persevere. 


An Eluardian instance.    


Dear, are we ready to be kaleidoscoped?

Untitled #2
(dialectic materialism, or
this night on two legs

A flowing sand

and an invincible church

surround your patience, and deep

with its radiant beyond


—this Night. this blue-junk country

on two legs, celebrates love

almost reduced to a wraith

at the edge of the city
