POETRY

“The memory. . . is. . . . the belly of the mind”

A villanelle from The Confessions

Denton, TX | 35mm film photo by author

A house of thought, for rumination
whose fruit resides in many rooms
where joy and sadness make rotations

The mind leaps up in celebration
witnessing a thing in bloom
stored in thought for rumination
