Into the oyster sphere of endless oceans

I escape ,

the amniotic fluidless motions

blindly compelled to my fate.

Catholicism delivery

anointed for my fares

releasing oaths to above

with hail Mary prayers .

World of doors

and knobs of brass

innocent breath

on window glass .

Eyes glaring into the endless sea

beyond life's conscience

that beholds what is to be .

In the tunnel mind

counter clocks rewind

alarms heed warning

of the things that hide.

Infancy and age trade hearts

to feel the now and then

and the galloping and molasses rhythm

of the beginning and end .

Love what you see

Young and free

curse the hateful sightings,

the hopeless dread of the sea.

Sky of stars

the jars collect

the flashing twinkles

of my regrets.

An open womb

an umbilical line ,

the wasting dream

of wistful infant's climb.
