who conceived your craters


the slender

bend of your knee?


what are the grape vines

-winding their way

under your skin-


attempting to say?

i tell you


do not try to mask

the torn lip

of the knee:


it is the crucial note

in the song

stinging the lies of madness.


if you tried to unmask your beauty

you would die from frustration.


 tell me


who crated the joyful cry of this canyon?
