Formative Texture and
Terrestrial Density of the
Warm Moist Earth of a
Terrasphere.

The Converging or Coagulation
of the Cardinal Insides
at a Stationary Interlude
of Stasis.

The Moderate Resolve of
Negative Absention
and the Smiles of the
Good, Happy and Glad.


Along a Meandering River
in the Cool of an Autumn Moonrise
with Warm Air and a Cool Breeze
through Hibernating Maple Trees
a Black Male Dog
Sits on Dead Leaves
