Evanescent

by Cameron Neilson


Shadows filtering
through
my brain.
Deliquescent,
and
formed into
dim light teardrops.
Drunk.
My upper lip –
beer foam.
My fingers –
vaginal juices.
Helios now
speaking through
parted
shutters.
Slices of mandarin,
through which
motes,
atoms,
move upwards,
ascend.
A perfect moment
for sleep,
for nihil.
