Portages And Parallels I

gnarled branches,
a forest ignites Channels misfire
escarpments for you alone
to hike the heights

A topography curling
the mind snakes
cognitive rites
Forensic scrying
A grey tundra awake
Enough to bite

These inlets
this marsh,
astral slush
Roads harsh

Knew you this much
Sensory interference
Lull the brackish
Silence the racket
A weapon to brandish

Apprehends Eros
Sterilizes the Bacchus
Exasperates the axis
First answer the brackets

Cortisol fruits ripen
Warm summer scent
Sick on the breeze
Vagus nerve
Fight, flight or Freeze
Time misspent
