the craving

the empty timings 
of ford trucks six galloping horse's
and industrial
hushes of flint Michigan's or'r
of a solid notion 
covered above quiet gestures
where almonds 
and mustard seeds gather

throughout the earths
crestful daunting arches
that glowed gravely
within the abrupt tides

flushing giant gnats 
crushing simple thoughts 
where sullen valley's closed in
the faint scent 

of perfumed nectar
wretchedness calling 
of tidy bindery folded

above empty wine glasses 
and half filled tea cups
catering to the craving 
sound of humanity

while chaste mindful 
cringes grazes 
within yellow fields 
of dandelion's mist 
concealing a paste 
of harden surfaces
grooming the rough edge's 
of man's inner most soul

pardoning infancy
therefore simply
tampering with 
the keeper's nest of kindness
