FLOCK/ MIRAGE – Part of the INCANTATION SERIES (2010 – 2012) A mirage is defined as an optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions, usually the refraction of light in heated air. The most well-known example is probably the false appearance of a distant sheet of water in a desert, or on a hot road.
there it is again
even as i whisper i hear it still
trailing my voice in perverse replication
almost the same but not quite
as if somewhere somehow out there
in the bouncing back and the going through
the muck and the rain
and the fleshy pouting grit
of it’s mispronounced migration
some words were irrevocably lost
whilst others were delayed
and found uninvited company strangely grafted
onto their limbs
before flocking to the edge of spring:
i didn’t say that
or say it in that way
much less mean for it
to come out suspended
primordial mating call
