“we question the way we stop and admire,” Arkava Das

Picture-9Ocean View Drive, Z.Z. Wei



“we question the way we stop and admire”
we question days ahead now
“making ends meet”
            the body and its outcomes lie
blinking in a room
“we drift closer” to a sunset
off-limits to anyone but those
in the grip of concentration

    [to sleep with
al-furud “the bright single ones”
sustained points            taken out of conversation

       clouds trailing days “continuously

                   shrunk to a point”
       illusion regrows the body we set sail on]

an eye my breathing gesture
and every reversal* to type

arranging peaks around you
the way we stop and admire

what now derives from the clouds

* [sic]
