water coloringed (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

water coloringed 

they spreadinged and swallowinged on
in this low droning stare
of who this who in here
who for they selfing
purpled grey splotchings aloninged
wrinkling and drying on out on one another
growinged hard too soon 

welfaringed moments
they chanting and caressing us all
bleeding on through the veils
of invisibled-ling faces
running on out here
all over us all 

they spreadinged and swallowinged on
in this low droning stare
of who this who in here
who for they selfing
purpled grey splotchings aloninged
wrinkling and drying on out on one another
growinged hard too soon

  1. Dear Asili, Thanks for the recent postings. I am well and geared up to conduct a workshop on Margaret Walker for Jackson, MS libriarians about an hour from now. The problem with 70 year old bodies is that parts wear out. Now, I will have outpatient surgery for a hernia later this month. Que sera, sera.
