the cartilaginous meaning of words,
bending translucently where there should be
the erect column of a thought of an androgynous colour,
is nonetheless of an arguable flexibility –
as proof for that stand
the numerous tombstones
surrounding here and there the irregular surface of the sight,
at which salty root one can observe
the tender crystalline striations still preserving the slightly amniotic scent
of silence
