movement implied

dimensions argue : bid for attention

not one settled to flat : yet still


colour              suffers

dead hand over the mouths of

carmen : turquoise : veridian 

crust exhausted

abraded           bleached 

muffle of sand  and wind’s whisper :

 once were

 human souls:

feet burnt skin tinged  blisters burst sore annoyed whining 

haunt lightly 

no purse to open pulse spent

distant sun feels surface:        expended        stormed

deep earth feels surface:        rasped              gaunt 

beneath singeing sun / singing  sand

magma boils consequence
