Circles Within Circles

tears dripping onto my tongue
like bitter ink onto pristine paper

writing songs of indigo
foamy waves crashing splashing

painting butterfly wings
swish-swish into the azure sky

to pull me back
from the dark

       flutterby wishes

to smell the sweet air
scented with memories and dreams

       lead weights

their surreal quality

       denying
       irredeemable
       neverwhere

dragging
pulling
squeezing

       rewind

tears

dripping

onto

my tongue…
