  • The grapefruit rind of a sunrise
    The snaking haze of a storm
    This great to-be is not a spontaneous it
    Watch the writing on the greatest wall – it’s honey-slow to show
    A millisecond adds every day until the tides have sped
    and the leap is pending
    And when it arrives, I nod for the tells I was permitted to see
    and that I was invited in for even a second longer.
