Chasing Smoke

words

by Alesia Tarkington

These words are but a

dream transcribed:

letters making

hazy sketches of images

holding uneasy negotiations with

thought

unintentional deceptions

designed to elucidate

that which must be

decoded

a core buried deeper and

further abstracted into nothingness

to arrive at the real meaning

an incomplete somethingness

standing in the shadow of

all that is.
