'...the basic elements of containment in practise abroad'

           
           
           
           
the obligation of silence.            
all creativity is relevant.  
         
             
the time it took            
between my fingertips            
             
and the dead tv force. if only            
I            
could            
expel the old codes,           
             
the gods and the spaces in between...          
absorbed in            
             
hawk training,              
and the jesses, anklets and  lures,            
             
hung above the crest, on wave,            
hovering the eye-line.            
             
you      
told me  to let it go,            
free            
a tear astringent,            
             
a tear out of all of the secrets, mustard            
hall burns yellow and all,              
             
and ‘ all will erupt,      
             
I promise’    
they yell            
             
so her(e) now            
and the  wing and plan regale            
             
of the congo lust and the lung of raw skin, how            
easy any caliphate can curtail a mirror,            
             
can cloth            
the curvature of a diamond,            
             
as a skin can curtain so            
© over your eyes            
             
I snowed switzerland            
you were star wars.
