Tangled Fluorescence

byLauren Hynde©

Rain tries to dilute
the progression of shadows
an exercise rendered useless
by the passage of time

a dark substance
contrasts neon signs
delivers them fully legible
to the night

moss grows without the support
of walls like budding
on a bath of vapour
a permeable mist
where light flows
condensed within

the glass and the water
multiplies it

numberless crystal
(re)flexing colours on the air

drop by drop

always the percussion
of an obsessive hum
rushes a fabricated winter
until the fractured letters
spill through the windows

scintillate through our sleep
foam spills off the screen
soap, or sea
but for now it's only time
and rain
trying to dilute
the progression of shadows

the progression of time
builds a rainbow
above the haze
where we can light

a single jet of fluoride

flames out of winter
from heaven to heaven
to same cloud forgetting
all horizon references
make familiar strange places

the light the day

we imagine different times
relearning how to breathe
the ephemeral air of each room
when neon fog fights the rain
illuminates us without diluting
the weight of the crepuscule
and our tangled fluorescence.
