a made thing
      this verbal construct
an event
   in language
                 makers many
of fabrications
things of art
         words&sounds
weighed
&valued
          indifferent to reality
crafted
&woven
           verbal artefacts
as a living entity
mysteriously conceived
                             delivered...
two moments
     of a single pulse
twixt
     voice&ear
one plane of reality
                          to another
a species of eloquence
      figuring forth
to teach&delight
        in the name of imagination
a spontaneous overflow
     of moments
        of solitude
visitations
     speech framed
        in thought&wonder
                      of subtle fire
&inward light
of revelation
           in an imaginary garden
caressing nouns
                 with metaphor
saying one thing
meaning another
with
   stored magic
from a room
       full of marvels
a language in orbit
           a remembrance
                      unearthed
a temporary ossession
intense
&undeniable
             as a shiver
down the spine
