A tally of carbon mounts          .






Falling into lines and columns and sheets

He-trailblazer- carbon

vanishing from the miniature curtain rail


And the wood panelling parted

For him



Spirited universe

Trailblazer swooshing down that tunnel

Past the polished panels


into vast brightness that is sweet ecstasy

trip of wonder and love

      He goes headfirst and on his ass




Giddy love tunnel whoops

Arms extending and dancing

It is purely joy and cuming from now on

To be spoken with steadfastness and will and determination for parting panels


love tunnels


coming cuming







Dots      .
