stucco

like pressed flowers

found in an old book

the world grows flat

long passages of white

on white– white sand

below a white sky

holding a white sun

a black line defines

the horizon like a closed eye

there’s no sleep in this noise

no rest from the silent mundane

oozing across a glass pane

the snail’s slow slime

becomes the air we traverse

connecting the featureless day

to the homogeneous night

clouds press low like stones
