If Only

Having toned and centered all will to this: 
	Peeling off the filth, grime and thinly veiled sins of writing:
	I reach.
	Exposing a new viral skin, a candied armor:
	poteat and swirled. 
	Old ways, crumple to the earth like wet dust,
	pooling dry.

	And I:
	emerge as a cataclysmic beam of energy,
	plugged in,
	magnetized, inhaleing the vigor, through my mind,
	until a quazar of light implodes, sending bursts of thought,
	into the Cartesian coordinates,
	hanging tidspits, of poetic data
	here and there.

	My body quivers, 
	unseen, yet deep to bone.
	I envision space, with dark pulsating ideologies.

	Knarling them like twine,
	I collect the alphabeted  fog.
	To form an adjective, 
	so connected to the attempt,
	I must open my mind
	and reach inside with care.

	To touch that, which is forbidden,
	and bring out into this world,
	where it does not belong, so it will grace a page.

	And then I sigh,
	Does my heart control effort?
	I turn and leave,
	exhausted from, 
	continuing to look at the blank.
