What will grow numerously
He shant
In the hostile room where white appeared
Food shoots through pipes
Without faculties to arise
With the moss laying bare its body

The vacancy of divinity
Lushness from the bough
He who provides no answers     sleeping

The webbing floats   centerless
She who has tipped her face into
Run up and touch it    run up
