  • precipitated atmospheric water vapor the water rises observable
    the gutters are full no longer overflows in your line of sight
    the ship anchored eyes: mortal, hollow your heels kick up
    galaxies imagined, flesh between palms, hands in flames grief
    arms and knees. freewill. death and rainbows. repeat time cold penetrates
    backwards grow fonder in the dark. bones in the body a withered tree
    transparent weather vane lightning strikes
