spirits flicker imprinting
lingering the jagged cleft
stints in brains suggesting
floatations deviled in opine
a gazelle single file rifled
mortal impudence lift out
the drift of colder air leaking
links of children’s laughter
aching a wanderer flip over
ghosts could culture
lips sync and slip sideways
lend hands to the back claw
less nail and capture
forthright the wisdom seek
not to chide but to loom
leave a privacy scene gloom
mortify and monthly torment
spines serving lines in shame
impish pig singing slew
faith is hushing a voice
silt hanging a shadow
spiriting mine in a flake
a flickering impression
forthcoming heartbreak.
