silently aware. gray tones of late dawn. the poor man's dove calls out.
an acknowledging breath. sore. soar. a modest tenderness.
lyrical tones of cigarettes and vermouth loiter on lobes and lips.
bare. a shared point. green is not vain.
beside besides, besides, besides (searching).
a path of cognitive discernment.
the spirit swells. quintessence.
the remains of their tenderhearted coil softly disseminate.
and so she and him came to be. a strange romance.
entwined. au fait.
the first drops of sentimental flooding.
Strigiformes behind the curtain all along.
