Principle of Water

& it is true; the fruitlessness of washing

the knees. I know what i please to not be deliverance. I say; permit my dirt, cleansing

is but sisyphean. Straighten a leaflet’s leg, sooner it will reconcile to its comfort. It is

an ill-dressed evening, epoch, my mother do not flower of perfume. Sometimes, i am an unfilled grave. A stomach, protesting for spaghetti. My Desire, a garden of ache, aching. I reckon courtship the first belief. Wasn’t it this sofa, God was sprawl, inspired, crafting a church out of an inevitable. That, flu could be dictated. That, grief could if at all, be forgiven. Walk onto the altar, bones, a burning log. & say, blue into an ember. A prayer that won’t gift silence, as uniform. This is the ballad of a testimony: crave so cleaving, chaos flatters you.
