in minor notes
Saw the infancy of the b chord when I had pillows under my spine & the doused figure with vine braids for a crown. The features years brought were mixed with the smell of vanilla bean in throat & heels, forbidden to take a step in coordinated company & walls with maps in thinning plea, unintentional & undone by a concrete flame that lighted the only allowed paper hat. Soon paws were discontinued & lids were framed in charred loudness, weakened by a blasphemy of a foot attempt to gain cardboard passages & printing spikes in buttoned florets. In the outward plight, antlers in a regular station held up a wheel & sewed the cracks in the infinite spheres so the azure can blind the weary etching & the creased bells of wailing lilies, in modest soil.
