    Why is there always rabid sunshine when my heart in breaking? We are prickled with brightness and left with nowhere to hide. And the afternoon flames through the house bringing the fragrance of the salt marsh and carrots from the garden.

    The daydreams are liquid and pale in their corners, and I am folding clothes from so long ago that they still hold their stories of from around the globe. I hear the vacuum and the shuffling of my father whose body curls around the the silver ...

    Perfume Space

    let us be.

    Soaring

    on the sky-bending surfaces of
    musical spheres


    Floating
    Rising
    Descending

    through vanishing wisps of topnotes

    as eagles.

    Darting

    on momentary vectors

    Weaving

    in lazy waves

    Chasing
