Where will it take a man?
A bucket of eyes grab the feet
Through the hole in an old socks
A mute copper street –Stretching balconies of matchbox houses
Where shall it lead?
A herd of cows walk down the throat,
Between — Birth. Death. And elsewhere
Seasons blossom through veins
And the black of the night — a hurricane,
Dreams a continent of Nimbus clouds.
A baby. A dog. A beggar
Wakes to a voyage in the gut,
Into prisoner in generations
We dissolve on the face of the mirror.
