nonsense verses

of the heavens I become the voice
and of earth  I am the eyes
I walk among the flowers
and I stand upright in the clouds
of the shadow I am the fine edge
and now the bluntness of light
of the stillness of thunder I sing
and the grief of lightning
I’m a poet whose tongue
has become serpentine
a madman whose ravings
give birth to shattered mirrors
