song 5

a.
The empty mountain.
Invisibility.

Red range of the spectrum, leading edge of energy as the arc is bent
There are seven candlesticks. One revelation
The sigh, the sign of the covenant, light’s gathered parliament.
Our minds are the blank in the rainbow parens, shadow light has lent.
Part for the whole, she
As one, at once, is synecdoche

b.
There is some delay through the headphones making translation
But word goes, work goes through
Into work of words, through nation
She is delegation, delagee
Part for the whole, synecdoche
Synecdote has my vote

Red range of the spectrum, leading edge of the pledge
Passing from promise to what it must be like to live
Roy G Biv
The sigh the sign of the covenant, light’s gathered parliament.
A tendency to bliss
Limit of our optics
What it must be like to see
Past the empty mountain;
Invisibility

She tells the world “change the world” in lived figure,
Biographic rune
God, I hope
She comes back soon

c.
Delegate, delagee,
Light’s essential Unity
The map is commotion,
A word for here working through the notion
Voyage Nation
Michelle is delegation
Bon Mot
Look we just don’t know

Mourning’s a way of coming back, coming back through
Mourning is my calling out to you

We’re in pinched dialogue with Loss, who is fluent where we falter
A map’s a claddagh, holding the world together
We pledge with little language
The girl’s one biographic rune
God, I hope she comes back soon

d.
Delegation of one, the world in figure
Christograph; figure of speech

Or a young woman in a holiday dress
Language spectrum
International prism
Tint fanned over boundries
Age of 18
The bon delagee.
Part for the whole, synecdoche

Claddagh, hold the world together
The boat swings in sweep at the term of a tether
Ear for the vowels and good with the “r”
Only just started and already so far.
Elle est reçue. Retrieved.
Retrieves.
She believed.
Believes.
Invisibility:
The fluency of my mourning

e.
A movie fanning to stills
Or storm raising a rainbow
The essential brokenness of stories
On affective show

There is some delay through the headphones making translation
A delegation from a state of light
But word goes to work through national stations
She’s with us as the red is always present, though not to our sight

Closed spectrum
Invisibility
Our minds are the blank in the rainbow parens, shadow the light lends
Part for the whole, she
As one, at once, is synecdoche

f.
Empty mountain
Invisibiltiy

Map: a pledge, a claddagh, a way of holding the world together
The boat swings in sweep at the limit of the Christographic tether
The chair acknowledges the delegate from the great state of vapor;
She is telling the world “change the world” in lived figure,
Biographic rune
God, I hope she comes back soon

g.
Tell me the world will change
If only invisibly

Map: a pledge, a way of being as one at once
Then and since
From promise to act
Light, invisible, in the nature of fact:
Somehow there
A head of red hair
The basis of a France, an arrow, an era

Seven candlesticks. One revelation.
She is in a white, white dress.
Invisibility:
The fluency of my mourning

h.
It’s like trying to photograph speech
The girl’s on voyage
In her costume, a white, white dress
Remonstrates in the language of her age
God bless us with absolute change
The sigh the sign of the covenant, light’s gathered parliament
Invisibility:
The fluency
Of my mourning

A map’s a claddagh, holding the world together
The chair acknowledges the delegate from the great state of vapor;
She is telling the world “change the world” in lived figure,
Biographic rune
God, I hope she comes back soon

Tell me the world will change
If only invisibly

I am with you
Be with me
