new from above/ground press: Light Waves The Leaves, by Razielle Aigen

Light Waves The Leaves
Razielle Aigen

Hello , World !

i like the way life collects itself around you . wind & sun  .                           you say
i’m in the mood of the night  & then it’s like “ hello world ! ” when our faces touch a touch , like the fetal zone inside a womb where there’s room . warm . womblike , womb life . lifelike . light cast on the dark places where we touch         in the night . reprogramming our basic syntax ,        morning moods our faces ,    a resemblance of who we might have been before we closed our eyes  . blank spaces         just there in the where where life collects itself around you . wind . sun . mood . womb . face .  we will have been         neither happy   nor sad                   like a mother with no hands collecting  life 
     you .
