what is

10 Dec

Susan Scutti

on the wall encaustic paintings contain separate fevers
and hang like untasted fruit

Sunday is a widening curve
the membrane bends in silence
as memories cascade

rain has been selected to distill this mood
while fire is meant to release the spirit
inhale the transporting smoke, exhale a vacating mind

there is little in this world that is meant to keep
but the sound of machines still fill the air
and the clouded sky never ends
