Summer fog exhales breath and wing,
wanders around a feather coat call
outside, out of range, out of ear.
Caw to commune content conflict,
degauss deception and decompose.
Divine dereliction demonstrates
division of an evanescent wisp.
Re-done queue recurse
ghost apparition approximate
blinks and incredulity ensnare
existent for fond impression.

noise as myths run their course.

as jugglers juggle, writers write
and painters paint presumption’s,
penumbra ghost, both ghastly and
grotesque, beatific and beautiful,
her memory glides through conscious-
-ness content (past tense).
