The ascent of a scent,
warm and humid like southern nights.
A recollection of something never had yet still known,
like the smell of a world existing prior to the industrial revolution.
Encoded in all minds, like a forgotten dream suddenly recalled.
“It’s curious how ‘illicit’ is used more than ‘licit.’ ”
“That’s not what I’ve come to discuss.”
“Are you sure about that?”
The livery stable holds a horse rode hard and put up wet.
From the projection of the rider’s own limbic system,
thereby was a scythe observed
off in a river of cortisol,
and, then, resheathed into the odd, wrappings
made of hide.
The harmony of the discord between a
nervous system that is only given rest through
relentless fight or flight.
The capture and surrender of two individual, respective attentions.
Things contained and separated by encasings of skin.
Verba Eclipsata Intende A Dinspir.
