Beauty

takes not
upper hand
enough
of all that
that's about
and takes up
time and spaces
(filling foodstuffs
blowing leftovers
stuffing holes ...)

but then

- in between -

blueprints

YOU

the mouth stick
the vortex tail

blue cloud
on white ground

you're fully live
the insolence of
young ones

you stretch
your blue bow

so in staying on

you are so
precidious
so simply
wonderful

all
wisdom
and sensation

so
go
so so let go

so hurried

and then
what you are
so
all for you
alone

then further
also
a mere bit
me

oh, lay your warm hand
on my speak whole
'while it's as if
you move love"
- a time
that goes
on telling
that tolls
a whole

so
go
so so let go

are you

hungry

love to come
