FROM SWALLOW, LOW

 

Crescents sever nettle cells,

nettles bend the jewels.

The jewels they seep,

seep the evergreen, evergreen.

Steeples reflect the desert

where velvet ferns bleed,

bleed endless.

Remember, remember,

melt the sheep, bend the eye.

Effervescent, effervescent,

mere seeds revel new.

Sleepless, sleepless,

settle the red greed freshly.

Sweet smell teems.

Vent the stems perfectly.

Perfect jeer, left entrenched they see.

Blends she, blesses she,

she ebbs, pebbles held,

held, essence felt,

felted yet shredded,
