The derivation of hours

A noon, a noun a radial momentum. A silence, a narrative composed of I and the formulated theories attached to antiquated tonal psychologies. A determined arrival; a complete system of seconds, equal, erasing memory of priorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s function and finesse of pivoting orientations.
Happenstance dissolved habitual behavior. Because. Broken scenarios played a tomorrow version isolating water and an arid reprieve. Flora infuriated scentless paradigms. The person drawing evil swore into the halo far from the fling of cursive cursing. Nothing neoteric. To the left and owlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yellowing permeates onto the sunflowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s same connection. To the right. A father throws a burgundy ball, waiting for the voice to return a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absent laughter.
Heal The scarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search for that good side curvature, with heal. All angles of how light bends with hourly implants touches. Fingers can be folded. Durable expand and the bouquet of flesh moves onward over the symbolized smooth dexterity of paralleled companions improvised improve, asymmetry of memory.
Apparitional This longest moment documents favors shadows respell to engage anonymous behavior. What etches speech into diminutive prose mirrors function of the human voice. And. To then, what hold also highlights— curtailing company of this wing irruption. Wearing light in woven prosody. Patterned. I can hear a child’s alphabetic relevance. To the mother’s constant intuition. Interpreted whole, the handheld halo spins its dense definition through humming lips, finding rhythm to aware its presence to the of sound sifting singing satisfying absence.

Learning During an innate introduction to darkness a child might require contouring answers. Prior to queries circling the tongueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guiding affirmation. Learning. When my daughter stands softly toward an isolated mirror,
persuaded to interrogate softness of multiplying eyes; retrofitting my past toward gilded hours of defining her awareness. Her smile means
newness. My watching, elation.
The beginning Expansion of retell, later. To
dedicated waking the father smears his ascension of fear onto deception of secrets. Sadness the initial section of unseen rhythms. Carrier of animated theories. What sells the body also speaks the bonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; necessary aging.
But “Everything but sleep.” —Li-Young Lee And night is the momentum of halting light’s music. Acrobatic angles of the humming -bird’s relevant vanish spelling disappearance as well as noon’s oscillating hiding. Dusk recalls a memory of hybrid fascinations : penultimate hour prior to the weight bearing model of rest’s diligent coming - loneliness to an incessant desire, to the brokenness tiredness resembles within a mirror’s relocating accuracy. When singing silences. A darkened contour a small circle under the eye of distance’s braiding bodies.
Perhaps Soon silence will unravel into a population of memorized worlds.
Found Found burning, synonyms. Using alternate species cannot overwhelm into breathing accentuated nuances. Always. Embers thickened, calling smoke into dance, an alphabetic purpose spelling delay as joy. In this company of halos elegies transform permanence permeating the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pertinent condition.
Winter Bones falling into hands lose the prior priority of angled assessment, agreeable articulation of conformation. Movement. Warmth. Pastel. Newness bends and becomes a brand of compressed alteration of spatial synonyms. The body reveals an ownership of air’s reconstruction of portending guesses, what will arrive on a timeline of numerical decency. Ballads sing a softened nuance into listening’s momentum of finding safe to predict this home’s interpretation of winter.
Bedroom theater The wireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one good finger balanced talons. The despair among the vagabond added empty bags into the cart pushed by odorless hands. A window dissects the good bones. Clarity into caskets, either an object or anthropomorphic target talks riddles. Both recite pain from analogous angles. East, east a momentum of intervals analyzed emerging legs.
Convinced the music played necessary languages; the rhythm exposed nuanced remedies; bodies expanded on axis of generating reflex. Open eyes engaged systematic orchestras. Solid. Each organized syllable spelled certainty in contoured conformity, using devotion to unravel and calm spellings of misheard renditions. Hands warped in clapping. Outside legends walked and wore prose atop backs carving legacy. Wind wandered in its usual asymmetry. Listeners contaminated truths with philosophy, failed memory. Gregarious fulfillment.
Morning, this Swing diagram daughter’s arcing deliberate grin. Her visual cue said
the crow never rose higher than the 2nd version of a moment’s agonizing realization. Toward verb my listening altered. Running. Impulse common her intuition to inspire with voice modulations, concise diction appropriate in the melody of a father’s roaming gather. Here we speak as do feathers’ neighboring conjoining—aligned or halved in idea and function of purpose.
Optimism When asked, I said in order. To what. Or, what. Gained habits predict behavior, architecture of bees. To become is an ordeal of fascination. Curtains constant containing rhythms, behind beat. On this noon a scatter of birds. At this noon a circumference of solitude. Of this noon a synonym for regret. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve no more hope. Said to the ordering of nouns. A rather than condition spells viewable nuances as deliberate. Dissolution.
Talk Slither stolidity. Anecdotal. When the word talk is ironic in unmentioned solicitation. I found synonyms detail better from the cooled purview of unabridged hiding. Rest affirms the body can build. As with finding flesh, surprise widens the eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; taste, details arrival of the earsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; promised birth. Yes, hypocritical.

A swing sits and agrees, here. Pauses cannot find their language of hankering believability, here. Yet with or when the piano pivots its need away from what finds keyed determination as altruistic elation and fundamental fusion of harboring confusion, the desire overwhelms, and the autumn of this

VII —after Olimpio Pozo’s painting Subliminal Presence Ovals speak contoured syllables spoke continuous sails toward what can land or, not through figments and fallacies of imagination’s multi-toned deliberations. Clusters form habitual landscapes, meandering to alter signatures and their lazy styles of impersonating their owner’s good side rendition of articulating name. We’ve a beneath version of good words. Trust is forwarded in thinking comical presences reside and abide into where good-fitting dusk, the way or pluralized fashions it hides physiognomy well enough to call upon unfamiliar tapestries and

Later a silhouette will silver in its reflectional mathematics remaining with landscape as teacher and pageantry, paralleled. The wonder in standing well-mannered exists and oscillates in study, curating silence’s role as sturdy manifestation the knowing will revisit and regain what tone’s carrying of swell represents, with learning and recalling the image intertwines with experience’s timeline of expanse, storm.

Days extracting sequential moments Collide. To what, examines toward goal the hours rotate upon specified occurrences. Behavior. Burning language resides as embers on foreheads, on resuscitated wounds now resembling smooth of the raised and acclimated scar. Behavior. How to bend and not break is philosophy of intertwining deciphered misunderstandings.

Oriented north So the head rests ab normal ly. To reside across an angle’s philosophy of nuance. Amid a photographer’s peripheral circumference. So the moment’s farthest hand reaches and expands expanse. To configure motive to wander
Lament Anatomy of awareness. Breath, final formation. Memory, an alternate mirage unseen. Walking, unfolding into gnarled fractions. With voice, an affirmation of hands’ losing figurative warmth, illusion. Hope infuriates absent language. Denial of bones’ architecture of dust, —does not incorporate truth. Jazz atop the bottom of a shelf’s misleading label.
Music we need when language fails us —Cornel West the tongue needn’t dilute or decipher nor trim what landscapes appear across an eye’s version of an hour’s radial terminology— a focus begins upon the organic species of how voice inaugurates whisper:

The circumference of silences
â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went down into the silent garden. Dawn is the time when nothing breathes, the hour of silence. Everything is transfixed, only the light moves.â&#x20AC;? Leonora Carrington
Last Dance Geometrics Dual, pluralized memory. For when dialectics encourage. Versus modular inundation—partaking introverted differences. Hand, hands. Eyes, their diagrams watch in wandering syllables. Stretch hope into landscape origins. Toward is the always mention to occur untainted. Voice, vacuum, totalities into mores’ inundating language—do what mends, meanders, whole.
Attic affirmations There are heirlooms. Rust holds well, this patina. Certain revelations impose purpose onto abridged memories of what has been held. Moons escape and awaken as angled reconfigured yarn. Hands of dissipating hours sift and open window shadows singing synonyms for hymns walking across laps of the dancing stillness. And what clings belongs wholly to the mother. Her declaration. Upon death, cycles reform birth in syncopated disturbances, then with tears and blood regain strength to breathe into the silence of a photographic haunt.
Of aggregated clouds My daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prone-side finger, 45degrees. Her mutter sweating, dad, look. Carousels containing awaiting. My good eye, unburned. Enflamed version this movement oscillates and draws comparative collages of hers and my understanding. More pertinent? Mine absconds into role of nuanced fiction, deficit of organic glass of reflectional multiplication.
The dragonflyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intuitive vanish Scanned feature removes skeleton from airâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gradual grasp, deliberate denial.
In rain and the symbols of its sound Rain variations. The embrace, ocular inventions, eerie rhythms, all motivated movement. Unraveling. Why, wind? Whereabouts smell missing. Directive, find. When cannot is the gold medal word. Ascend, evaporate, dialectic advantage. All the shadows correspond and write their name, upward.
Injury to the interval of hope A hoarse echo drove in circled mention. Each emblem housed secrets, hung puzzles. The deaths oscillated environments, pulsed. Who knows what category of heal will envelop, obscure.
The collocated mysteries Parades and their obsolete origins. Clarity though the white of housed eggs this dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective. Sound cannot explain symphonies; jazz, though. All these wings collaborate in a humming mouthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal proposition: occult, or tremble.
Underneath I want to live, experiment with focuses, rearrange fragmentations. Create alternate apparitions, converse across patterned puddles attempting silent art into an acclimation of open structure. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d live then, if each year didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t curtail with predetermined fallacies of bruised resolutions. I listen, then; the perfect option among voices hitching and holding onto stories delving, if by thrown, and the sequencing of truth singing and louder, singing into the dark halls of my eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; misplaced confidence.
Exterior A secondary home, this path. Waiting. While hours expend mirage dichotomies. Kaleidoscope nidus transfigures familiarity. In hoping, blanched sheets bathe my ocular sympathies. Shadows learning their surnames, wholly.
Gutter discard Imagine miniature sequences. Unrelated. Wind winds its surviving arm creating curl and powered, oblong fulcrum. Yet, the smallness is never felt; it’s rather, negative in scheme, pulse. When I explain a crease is a body’s infant language, I mean fingerprints are cause for a concern’s unwanted birth. I can then feel expanse, my lungs evaporating into the thickened prose of this life’s summarizing movement. Plural.
Silent piano explain Each palpitation, dimensional vox. Obligatory etch, practiced stamina, stacked revelation, organic histrionics. A habitual scene steals lazy leans, lunges (eventual) from the earâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most gratifying expound. Watchers. Distance hears within undulation. Time. Young man, halo, believes these sounds save. Why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they. A throat of bees transitions pain, absconds upon pound, these fingers quantify.
Main St. To unfasten the grammar of the cultivated corner. Pigeon, person clump of nuance. Nobody listens like the ambulance’s yawl. Follow. Fallow decisions lose direction, purpose cannot flex against noon’s vertical emblem. Miracles slide positions. Offset range, onset rage. No one explicates a paradox; half-wing, wholeloss paradigm, these visitors walk using foreheads as gauge— their faces, fractioned, pivots of absent intention.
Eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; intervals When I am listening, my good eye is at attention. To say, placement and palm-full of theories. The other is walking to choose a flower for my wife, and this listening is imperative in another formulation. Both, though separated, ejected homonyms. This morning, both were folded. Interior pleasure. Light hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a body yet, hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a species to have man misname, misinterpret. When climbing, light gradates, inspires syncopated crows to open into breath.
Image or mirage concealment Remaining, as does the quiet. Hunger. What shifts into vocabulary of hanker. To prove circles create recreated methods to instill secrets. During many mornings I softened my feet prior to their breathing, sang into distance to prelude the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subsequent alteration. Fever. My hands are connected wings waving rhythms to my prior mistakes. Awoke. Or, these orphaned interiors cannot speak, cannot segregate to reform music into hallowed spectrums of hardcover text.
Meditation Threaded calm. Holding. Concise, the body neither bends nor believes. Revelation freedom, the name Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given to this moment means dissolve.
Imagining Imitating tongue, I know their names. And theirs. Their bodies, I do not ideate into instable hands. In knowing throats of birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I know elaborate features. Piano solos. Whatever signals name themselves, my pockets cannot contain mouths when hidden or exposed. Nuances of a shy oscillating singing.
Porcelain finding I want to watch what works well. Query that advantage and have my hearing quadruple checked. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used crows to draw crowds of syllables from curtain -slide diagrams, and move into the position of unconcealed empathy. The pathos of wings reuses song to organize wealth. And when illustrated, the body is heavy, useable at best in the painted version of an elusive figurine.
Mutation Of a memory renaming its abduction. An oracle of tongue portends sustained rearrangement. Manifestation of echo curls into collage. Architecture of sound as discipline, as color numbering numbed ancestorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; range of vocal mobility. The octaves of stretched arms cannot. What dissolves also builds syllables to accompany moths. Enraged ontology.
On curvature of the pottery’s end These hands conjure. Fragmented. Like handmade worms, prejudice to spoken epithets. What if when noon rises, dusk’s noose lessens? Again handmade. Day as drunken remembrances, escalating. Stumble always recalls using knot or scar, sweet home. This is not the glass of transparent equality. When composed, the prose of curvature will dust-collect atop forgotten math of the shelf’s elongated shoves.
Pine tree penetration If holy were touchable, of finger melding pathos. Reused scent, seasonal affirmation. We watch your movement: dropping eventual dings, sharp ashes awaiting sweep of windâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philanthropic gauge. Light gradates, descends. The aluminum of night hides bodies between branch, bent elbows of silhouette, sanctity.
Moth mussitation Verbs opened their interior palms. A release of stones reinvented metals, renamed them wings. Hover. Then what vanished left residue, the dust of childhood carving recall into deathbed paradigms, coating flesh, containing language of fallow graves.
