Of bass






when watching

            an analyzing spectrum begins to develop hands


                        the fingering focus

extends effort in the refusing aspect of stoppingÕs functioning




such questioning syllables

interact upon clarityÕs realigning mention of home in the undulating meaning of movementÕs


idealized ornamentation





when holding iÕve

examined theories and

vocal silences amid a paralleling



judging the unsayable as whole

or slight in their fractioned




motive and constraint

of the altitude of revelationÕs

spatial interpretation





slumber the slender leaf


            exhausted                    in the finding of a cornered exhibition of

shadow-long (interpretation)




lack of light, causational dance of awakening


                                                or latter amid patterned cycles of inertiaÕs

gradating language
