Bewilderhof – 9

Bewilderhof

Chapter 9
– fugitive wakes

straw
steamed
he deslumbered
slept
not much
slightest disturbance
launching
him
awake
existential modality
again taking its place
alongside
light
sliding
through spaces between
barn boards
light
in parallel
across the floor
from the west
4:02 p.m.

he was the alarm
sentry
tasked as watcher
assignment
as payment
for release
still
bondage is
colored
in spectrum
liberty
graded
on a
curve
and again
the
axe, he could hear
it thud of the strike
like
a bell of oak
signaling return
of focus
