of a Subtle Wave
in Catabolic Capitulation.

Subjectively Passive Emotions
of the UnConscious
Yielding Concessively
to the Dark.

Actively Expelling toward the
Flowing Movement and
Rarified Sparsity of the
Cool Wet Water of an
Aquasphere.

The Diverging or Dissemination
of the Peripheral Outsides
at a Transitory Instance
of Flux.

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


Beside a Bottomless Lake
in the Darkness of a Winter Moonset
with Cold Air and a Cold Wind
through Snow Covered Pine Trees
a Black Female Cat
Runs through Frozen Snow
Watching with Eyes the Flowing Water
of Death's Deteriorate Projections
