hypnagogia logia

by Robert Andrew Perez


in  the  beginning  she knew  nothing more

than the i did,  then the  i shattered into her,

filling the blankness,  a white-wash of pure

[     ] she was a string taut beyond vibration.


in  the negative space of  whatever sheet  was

external  of  the   body,  a  phantom   warmth

sank.  its  planar suction  [     ] the wholeness

of a hole.
