I learned to call on details that come unnoticed
brush strokes that hide in-between.
In-between: to live but never fully here; to speak only to be re/iterated
the sky and earth
but always drifting.
we still canvas;
we fall a-part in the drifts
همسات ذكر و تذكير
I have a haunting or two that keep it all (in)sane;
marks of passion,
coloring days; slowing and rushing through,
disrupting sonorously the intricacies of the polished
held so dear in-between your ga/ze.
