Brief metaphysic

How long has it been
since you tasted joy?

And I said what
do you mean by joy?

Do you mean the fleeting
spasm of joy

felt in proximity
of another, or the joy

that quite literally
melts on the tongue? Joy

and its feathers,
its coursing blood—

joy of the particle
made to dance.

  1. recumbent in an idle mind, slim volume
    we all share together in the beyond time
    responsible for wedding songs that praise joy
    in calibrated figures that dance the mime
    sent to unbridle hearts and the devil annoy
