The Couple of Ideosphere




“I hate him. I hate him.”


She begins to say; from her third utterance

these phrases scriven a song off her hatred.



“I hate him. I hate him. Him, him”

She croons, wipes the dishes, kisses

him, and why not, she hates her.



This autumn full moon skips a cycle;

umbra remains pregnant; 

the alley aches for the sea it’s never seen,

and yet because everything of this land ends in

the brine sea’s omnipresence makes the pain possible.



“I hate him.” sings the bride 

He reads a pamphlet of ideosphere,

half here, half there, all in-between.
