Particular Whorls

Long had the surface

Of my fingers been rounded

In geometric paths

Into the most particular whorls.

No one has the same  patterns


My fellow wanders

tell me…How long can i whirl

As life passes

Like a self absorbed  beetle

and my words

skitter like

Butterflies touch the silk of sky

As a naked curved moon blossoms

And sings a song

That she shared

Only with the ocean

Orbits on the other

 side of a window.

My marks shall always skitter

 beyond glass

or the memories of surface

the softness of cloth….
