as if. Zgia


a heart sat down for
break
fast
hung its soul
like a head
in sorrow

might bring
as the heavy heart
gets up
and walks out
the door

    multiverse the soul

    let the words
    paint
    paper away
    no matter the circumstances
    hand over the keys
    to the stances

    and let the world
    litter your sanctum
    invade your kitchen.

  4. Multiverse the soul…I really ADORE it! 🙂 As for the last stanza, I remember Stuart H

  5. Hall saying once that cultural studies had entered the halls of academia and crapped on the table…apart from now institutionalized labels, I loved the idea of it, and glad to find it here, an uncanny resonance…xs
