The Sawdust Is Flying

Rating: 4.6
Sparks flicker
In wet eyes
Flashing shadows crawl
In the hallway
The sawdust is flying
An oxygen tube
Affixed to the nostril
Corner of the lip smeared in saliva
Persistent hiccup
Permanent stupor
My present is severed from my absent

Rafig, never had the honor to read about such a dual spiritual oneness before and deeply appreciate the force with which you bring it to us. It is so powerful I cannot help but feel that both souls are still present in present time. Just my feelings I pick up on while reading. Your experience with the Sparrows is such a beautiful painting and heavily percieved in your painting of this and the sawdust is flying perhaps for eternity is the singularity...............Jim Troy
