-THE JUNCTION CAN NOT SCREAM BACK TO ONE’S OWN NEED TO LISTEN- | A Poem by Richard William Kirkpatrick-Thorne

Cross The Name Off The List,
Off The Page And Off The Past,
Etchings InTo The Quiet Deep,
Let Sleep Not Be As A Route To Struggle,
As It Forgets ItSelf While I Strain To Remember,
To Recognize Familyar Eyes In The Mirror,
While There Is Change Behind The Flesh,
The Bone Underneath Stays The Same,
Holding This Up… Keeping This All From Falling APart,
Teeth Under Lips Near Tongue And…

My Voice Through My Throat,
A Traveler On A Bridge From Heart To Ear,
Then From The Heat InTo The Earth,
Forwards InTo The Winding Waters,
Thicker Than A Trickleing Dawn,
Erodeing The Foundations Of Dusk,
To Surround Its Origination WithIn Rhythmic Dissidence,
Borrowing NoThing And Knifeing At The Roots,
Dissolveing… InTo A Sense Of Humor… Killing Interference…

Birthing Coherence When The Signal Stabs Back,
Static Fadeing With Its Laws,
Now To Mend When It All Crawls Out From The Shade,
Returning…

At The Junction,
Crossed At Its Roads,
Am I My Voice As It Travels…

Or… Is It Being Me In Silence?
