GUEST POST // We, made of paper by Candice Daquin

We
Made of paper
Write our words
In careful ink
Watching how
Underside
Bleeds
***
We
Made of
Fog
Obscure our
Walk forward
In obstacle
And loss
***
We
Made of
Wrung hands
Gather yet dry
Clothes on line
Before rain
Unbidden
Falls in noiseless
Sheets
Turning lawn
Vivid green
***
We
Made of
Incomplete
Stitch
Find no
Substance within
Wicked light
Dashes birds from roost
Darkening impending cloud
Like spilt ink
The words
Of my stained
Radiance
Dried and smudgeproof
With furied
Element

  1. I am reading this and love the way the words flow, the images it creates. And then I get to the last section. And I have to stop and read it over again.
    We
    Made of
    Incomplete
    Stitch
    Find no
    Substance within

    I love the image here, the emptiness. It’s something we can all relate to.

    Wicked light
    Dashes birds from roost
    Darkening impending cloud
    Like spilt ink
    The words
    Of my stained
    Radiance
    Dried and smudgeproof
    With furied
    Element

    I feel like I need to let this part sink in more…

  2. That’s a bad woman. I say this often of her. She killed it here. It’s dead:

    “Made of
    Wrung hands
    Gather yet dry
    Clothes on line
    Before rain
    Unbidden
    Falls in noiseless
    Sheets
    Turning lawn
    Vivid green
    ***
    We
    Made of
    Incomplete
    Stitch
    Find no
    Substance within
    Wicked light”

    Love this~
