you like the way
the i slants,
an error's
guidance
in a sea
of hyphens.

sans-serif
in cropped crests
made to full-
stop breasts
beating;
an obsess-
ion breathing
in lost chests.

now a motive
is seething
with options;
play thief
and proceed greedily,
often.

dive deep
and drink
the leap's froth;
breath is only
as sweet as the
speech that breeds thought.
spake the drowned

Oh my. This is rather unexpected! Thank you all you lovely people for reading and enjoying and generally being awesome. I am updating this from my phone on my lunch break (which thank goodness for dA updates that allow me to do that) so I will be thanking you all when I get to my desktop, but know that your visit to my little corner of the internet has made my day.

Also for everyone wondering, NicSwaner had the original meaning just about right. I stumbled upon the user Is-lnds and quickly developed a poetcrush something fierce. Be sure to click the + and give the inspiration some love!

Keep arting,
C
