what if we flip this crimson doubt
release each expectation lark
to skies refilled from looming drought
would we still form a question mark

beneath astonished flannel sheets
our viscous whispers drench the dark
forgotten hist’ry made complete
would we still form a question mark

If I’m omega hanging, high,
above the finite point you spark
would I ignite or gratify
would we still form a question mark

  1. I simply love this. I really don’t know how anyone can arrange words to make them sound so beautiful together; I think it may be a superpower.

  2. Ah, Nate, I wish I had the time to take your poetry class… so I can understand how you make the words *do* that! If you remember, poetry is not my thing. LOL

    Love the line about forgotten history!

    1. I went back and forth on keeping that apostrophe in “hist’ry.” Most people slide over the o in history, don’t they? I’ve said the word out loud so much it sounds weird to me.

Tell me about it.
