Reach (Randyjw; March 31, 2018)


We stare at one another


seeing the truth of souls laid over

with daily fare and bother


absent reason for need

to posit motive or to wonder


absorptively inherent

a mind at ease in aura’ed comfort

Vessel of my heart

divulges its apex in one pulse completing


The laggard I have been

caught in mimicry’s firm-taught lesson

Held back, but not withheld

the two-step forth and back of beating


Existential the external vessel

beneath the surfaces of skin

harmonious contents

simmer and glimmer

and reach without

as well as within
