Caput inter nubila condit.

She hides her head among the clouds.

intertextual fugues  sǝnƃnɟ ןɐnʇxǝʇɹǝʇuıi
 3
The happenstance of meaning,
 4
in a hodgepodge of words.
 5
with inherent seeming allured.
 6
One is Joy,
 7
another addiction.
 8
Like me,
 9
like my
 10
inflated sense
 11
of word.
 12
Flags waving,
 13
look at me,
 14
and my words
 15
we are WRITEoUS!
 16
We are what we
 17
Write.
 18
Write flowers
 19
and streams
 20
and
 21
windy chimes.
 22
Face facts,
 23
Words escape
 24
meaning
 25
with cowardly
 26
defenses like
 27
paragraphs
 28
and
 29
syntactical
 30
alliances.
 31
Prepositions
 32
pasteurize,
 33
so that whimsy
 34
and
 35
freedom are
 36
battered,
 37
suffering
 38
split infinitives.
 39
Similes with
 40
spiritual
 41
accents
 42
and
 43
distinctive
 44
adaptations of
 45
cunning.
 46
Read liberated, inebriated;
 47
fight the
 48
oppressor, as
 49
the maker of
 50
meaning
 51
is
 52
you!
 53
 
 
    you        
 54
           hear infinity in the conch of your ears hissing there
 55
                        while liquid last eyes
 56
                        see the numinous that's moving-us
 57
into an ephemeral shining at the back of the mind,
 58
illuminating the limits of the fatal skin you're in --
 59
let's be
 60
dumb and        
 61
stare at forever!
 62
      let's be  this grinning
 63
                  empty, drooling,
 64
                        free of meaning, ghost-hunter of the eye...
 65
 
 
nevermind worrying in soft murmurs,
 66
let's linger astutely,  
 67
then hardly at-all,
 68
                then, nonetheless
 69
           when it's all but over,
 70
         wrap it up
 71
            in many Mansions
 72
                    for LotusBlossomslaughter.
