elegy

when the sky
                        falls
            catch its
                        diamonds
            on your
                        wrists
                                                      so I
                        can find you
            in the jar of black clay

    Thank you for posting this one. it reminds me of my style–kind of arbitrary imagery tossed together in a haphazard manner to paint a “unique, charming” scene full of “symbolism and metaphor”. Allow the mind to go wild with imagination!

    No really, it’s good to see myself from the outside, though, to see what some of the faults of my genre are. It helps me improve.
