XYZ and ZYX
























this is Kafka's sky
not yours or mine
thick dark thoughts
slowly catching
the dying dazzle
of day's end

sycamore silhouette
beckoning
a sinister single
story

spiralling steadily
into that tidy cocoon
nestled in steel white grip
of muddy root
that dug its way in
to feed
on the heart of the
unborn butterfly

I keep having this picture in my head of the sky swallowing a butterfly...beautiful

I love trying to catch those dark thoughts. They keep me feeling alive

the wind owns my soul...I don't know why, but this reminded me of that.
