careful slain
 

compress air
molecules cold
choke anger
sustain slush
hit tree snaps
broken sidewalk
slab across
ground cover

jealous rain

FacE

the way is born: the way is born:

faces the breaking

faces the breaking

from refined grains into panes

from refined grains into panes

through sounds of suffocation

through sounds of suffocation

faces the breaking

fragments  of  finger  feelings

fragments of finger feelings

through sounds of suffocation

the way is born:

fragments  of  finger  feelings

from  refined  grains  into  panes
