​​​​and no      they don't match

mouth goes first         glows

in the dark  see the animal-like

move

slithering away


it's all about displacing time

the yesterday

the roaming in your brain


blue & blue the forest ahead—

switch then to eyes:        say no

to this darkness


five fingers would have moved

the stone

killed the beast—


these are lips that want to talk
