The picture stubbornly returns,
paved with a sense of it’s origin.
Pater, Mater, Soror,
dream, strangeness, intimacy
Protection, kindness, selflessness,
and roots of childhood.
Warm shades of the night
in a taxi visiting friends.
A rare vehicle
befitting a child risking seasickness,
where one learns
the necessary transit
so to visit worlds
other than those encountered at home.
from where scrolls the nocturnal landscape -
an unearthing of bright colors
within broad sheets of anthracite.
