I am sorry.
dark and blue evening/ urban noise but quietness in the crevices of my thought system.
increasingly i characterize my life with a busyness seeking obstruction.
the text becomes part of my breath though few will listen.
hyacinths are a famous flower but famous to WHO is the question.
listeners are the fewest things. and the least.
i am later apologizeing for whatever meaning i produced in you.
this world of unstable selves, the way you changed when you weakness was revealed...
the caption beneath your portrait does not illustrate the loss.
