By Mike O’Connell
small room dark
smell of
typewriters
people sniffing keys
blinded by silence
unable to find
words drumming
bells(return)
stories rise
to greet storms
building shaking rippling
offer life rafts
to the flooded
worlds too new to die
visualizing lmages
endings
not meant to be
larger letters jam
ribbons
wound around
jerking words
inked inked to lives
elsewhere mindful
expanding
complete with characters
incomplete gray balloons
above the cranial carnival
drifting over
to the last word
sealed savored curtains
covers closed
rushed by dust
(reading blows it away)
