She abbreviates what skin learns. Ignorance is learned response.
How is distance between sky and surface bridged? In the way that
inference enclosed within parentheses necessitates affection:
plus-one R.S.V.P. to an invitation. The individual aspires to transcend
individuality, unless divinity, halved, becomes replete with
an infectious innocence. Blasphemy defies impure mistakes. The level
of assurance doubles what is known. Cognition engineers
directness. Flowers without names litter the atmosphere. Allergic
reactions constitute just one pattern of response.

Infusion, perfumery, young ditto marks tossed like confetti to the air

  1. Convoluted poet-speak reeks of arrogance - you seem to need a response, that's what I hear. Your public persona is a bit creepy, vampiric. And your poems are you. Take care.
