Sighs of a young maid
Rustling and Drifting
From side to other vast side of the bed
Or SO, are the sounds from the roof of my still
As the wind lifts the tarpaulin to peek inside
from time to time
and scampers away to hide somewhere
secret in between
A distracted child that sometimes likes to scurry
like an island rat
scratching at the bamboo
I lift my hand, STARK against the white bedsheet
and see it covered in red ants following each other
through an invisible celtic weave that signals
another phenomenon many magnitudes of scale larger
A hand
of God
scatters the mosquitos
from the night-time sky and into my oppressed room
Conversely I am lifted HIGH OH SO HIGH
very high
by the forks of electric blue

Oh, my storm so new


from Truth BeTold, released March 23, 2018
