Sheila E. Murphy and Douglas Barbour

Continuations LXIII:

a cross person dictates im
     pure possibility     de/natured
how it go away   how it
fall and failure follow a weaving
     line   up and down rout(e)
sands of time wasted blow back

rasterized imagery seats nature
apart from waste      while
lacking in allure        or rooted
   amid sands tattering old wood
      if pictures and their tangents
ever are     to go away

how far with that twosome fare
an I for an I after all iance
      finance inter curse     stitial
bleed     from a stone meant
for tuning the new body polite
ticks  talk their way out of

future value   present dance     a cure
where bursars are     some littering
    on terra firmament             the tics

age          cinching     cups                  
        at stages all    along the con    course

hole by whole   some were
     wolfed food chain reaction speaks
easy beyond all fathoming
that some singular being stated firm
anent adam meant for land or laud
     each time specific stage for song long gone

laudate fills the latent heart
with urgent notice of be
ginning each sing u larious
          sound      as accidentally staged
song      pathed to make
the chain residual and     wondrous

wander rushed song of rocks
     white watered   /  receded
notes bursting into bloom
     boxed    foxed       non-toxed
into fresh melodies    a sickened
world re/membering collates there

amid melodious tincture
crystalline freshness hastens
                     leisure of the flow
       unmeasured for white blooming
                draws the eye to note
     thick textures as the blend

     bland wash of white water
rush through caves crystal
eyes  /    archi tactics of the word made
glass    /  a whirling below a dance
erred memory writhes   revives
     the song of stone(d)    thrown down

lured to tones be
set by non-legato legacy            the world
made tacit          thins
            owned fade         a rush of it
      once tactile        errs
                against its own           g rain

g round down  /  a beefed up response
     a buffered tone  (or [re] buffed
how play into ghostwalked
subtleties  / sub-titles
     telling details lost in the fade
the faddish fall of words dead aired out

how play now       subtitles

     in the air moves laterally     
vertically from down           fading
     to loss        of capability      of (im)pulse

     plucked   placating noises off
side / windered      winnowed
     words wracked and un-wrought
fall from ghost mouths fading in sun
lit rooms speech foundering

of would-be mean

blue faced bards          leave rinds
     of song  by goat        by gum
      one ponders        what ghosts
weigh             while musing
lilting rerun chimes        without
a body to retain

retrain the body attuned toward song (off
     that kind     that kind of        muse
sick of marches militant
official officered bands bend to

a wake in inked chaos  (blackened

blinkery trilled close to the wake
of salt water searing

     with breath redeemed
from chaos       leaning chorally
