Since feeling is first.

From The Best Gesture of my Brain series via Australian painter, Julian Meagher.

since feeling is first

who pays any attention

to the syntax of things

will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool

while Spring is in the world


my blood approves,

and kisses are a far better fate

than wisdom

lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry

the best gesture of my brain is less than

your eyelids’ flutter which says


we are for each other. then

laughleaning back in my arms

for life’s not a paragraph


And death i think is no parenthesis
