III. Mystifying G r a c e

                             This is two people walking along the beach by the blue ocean at sunset.
                                                                                                                                 – Lieutenant Commander Data

To bewilder is to mystify another—
to be inflexed into one’s imagination
as you surf a scape
long enough to see it bloom.

                                                                                            Long enough to keep vulnerability at bay,
                                                                        giving every inch of yourself, spoken in palindromes—
                                           where the dreams are only there to decipher hieroglyphics.
                                    I only sing when I’m sure there’s not a soul within audible range
                              and the radio’s loud enough to mask my pristine singing voice.
    But what good is the mask as it were shed to only show color?
What good does a singular radio have on the rhetoric of your tones?
Your soul is beauty collected within vicinities of my beating heart
within the mass that boils crimson into life breathing mechanisms.
To hear falsettos, enter my canals as a slight chuckle—I mesmerize.
    I absorb all the words spoken in poetry along the line, I absorb
                              the manifestations you present to me in nothing but sincerity,
                                   I absorb your patience as you challenge my own, I absorb
                                           all that required my pristine attention above all, your voice
                                                                        inspires thus conspiring the mystification of ourselves.
                                                                                      Long enough to push vulnerability back to sea.

To bewilder is to mystify another—
to be inflexed into one’s imagination
as you surf a scape
long enough to see it bloom.

                                                                                                                                                                          for A
