Lost Without Words

Lost Without Words, paper collage, 2021

midday

or,
a palm tree
in absolute movement

a butterfly
and an infantry

racing through
suburban streets

become enormous
at the mention of
their entwined reality

this is and is not
a gesture of
sudden extravagance:

a seashell
and a monument

a dense underworld
of dandelions that
hurls itself through
the foot-holes of space

is an unblemished metaphor
for a life worth living

  1. I like this piece…and I love the butterfly and infantry and their “intwined reality”…our fates, our lives, our realities so much more intertwined than we can fathom. And I love the closing line “is an unblemished metaphor for a life worth living”..indeed it is..
