Wire

taut wire

Below,

ink slimes its black

and worms trails

in souls with words

scratched indelible,

pithy as coal

Above

oxygen breathes colour

and swims in silky

tides billowing,

angels in tow

while

Between,

I

stretched taut,

frayed wire hung

from precipitous

mantle, reach

for what

is mine
