wondering where are the Lapitas
somehow preempting
obsidian snowflakes that retell
sparsely inhabiting my veins.

is it like Da Vinci's code
inscribed in every soul?
or DNA of the uncertain,
now i am  thinking...
is it within me living?

am i like a pottery image of enfeeblement
or history bubbles fade in the air
where no dreams unremembered?


you are a saudade
for a breathing BE-ingness
you are  an aubade
to the rigmaroles reverberating
in one's odyssey, beyond existence.
that kindred spirit in us will always be
a kiss of metamorphosis,
an influential specter of iridescence,
and a reminder of becoming the best
the great ones amidst variegation.


i can see you in my homeland
from the waterfalls of darkness
that become birthing gemstones
amidst paralysis.

i am designed by great ancestors
through the rhythm
of chaotic harmony
that become yielding bricks
and paradigms of evolution.

i can taste the ethnicities
in the wars capes and seascapes
of grassroots,
that become crowns of the pacific ocean,
and wombs of un-dismantled exodus.
