in the olfactory and in love, taught me

Unlimited.     Or limited, but only by

One’s own imagination, which is powerful

But fragile, is defenseless,     but is limited

Only by things unseen.     As Bark Psychosis did it

a chip of ice you found in river
sludge, its sheen a mute witness

to increments of change
as lens and pure belief.
