WITH REGARD TO WAVES

Striated crumbles of sand stud the shoreline, their abrasive roughness counterpointing the smooth, silken, frothy waves. As the tide ebbs and flows, a subterranean undersea life springs to life. As the sunlight expands and stretches to the horizon an incandescence permeates. The waves are dappled with silvered depths and glint and irradiate with flashing arabesques of luminosity. The wave advances, pauses and leaves behind sedimented remnants. Another wave spills forward and retreats, carrying back sediments whilst depositing fresh ones. The waves glitter oleaginously with unctuous foams sprinkling the water with streaks of foamy softness. At the far horizon the temporality of the land and water becomes indistinguishable. All that is seen is a point, a line of coalescence receding further and further.

In the phosphorescent penumbra, the waves gleam iridescently. The opalescent dusk obliterates traces of diurnality and brings into being spectral presences which peal forth twittering carillons of sporadic shreiks interspersed with fathomless silence of unparalleled depth. The suffusion of life, its sinewy tissues loosened by day contract into fluidly intractable whorls. While freneticism proceeds unceasingly its importunate rhythms are slowed, rendered tenebrous . But the immitigable spray of human continuance, undeterred by mortal depredations, moves on and on.

INESSENTIAL LUNAR TRANSMOGRIFICATIONS

As consciousness abrades against cognition
The moon, pellucid and impassive
Rends its edges and frays its surfaces
While perception moves on and on
The lunar circularity replicates and reiterates
The folly of sunny, sanguine hope
And undermines the agreeably illusory with
A tincture of disenchantment

This, then, is the moon where
Indefatigably inconstant lovers meet
Ululating carillons of fidelity while
Seeking under recumbent moonbeam
An expiation from love's travails so that
While they profess ardently the throes
They conglomerate in dissevering hordes.

The illusion underscores tenuous reality
By counterpointing the real's chimera
Under the scintillating shadows
A desiccated countenance becomes regal
Hierarchies and structures overturn
Superfices and depths commingle
Intersection of multiplicities transcends
Quotidian oblations of conformity

Coruscating neon refracts silhouetted reflections
Shadows ebb and flow, mingle and disperse
Reams of knowledge dissolve into pixels
Of unauthenticated conjunctions of experience, stressing
Not just the carapace truth is
But the transgressive potentiality of fancy.
