I.


I
among antemeridian’s abbreviated
bridge of tonal

silence varied assimilation foreign proclamation,
breath and fortune
reside within
various species of gradated grays:

creatures
seldom whole upon silhouette’s antiquated identity
roam
into blame of notated burgeon

created illusion ?
questioned hope or
negated fantasy.

Sound now is sacred.

Scent is mutated interpretations of distance’s aggregated deaths.
Organoleptic
misery
(unyet dissection of metaphysical architecture)
envelopes
rectitude of
morbid health this
thickened charcoal
resembles among
ancient desires to collocate light-understanding.

II.


Cerulean flexures
thickened ceiling of articulated absence

goal of golden italics
ideologies promoted
range of vocalized discomfort—
this
prognostication of light, ancestral to the watcher’s dispositional
hankering
retains the
enigmatic cultural delusion of

self
wearing venerating garb
dictating aligned fantastical
ranges of
formulated gris-gris
specialized devotion toward
held discomfort;
soon
is the supposition
of energized wealth, and I
wander
extricating
movement’s various indifference as
this hour’s involvement hides and eludes much
articulating endeavors, mimesis of

extended hypotheses

III.


Cold circumvolves its thistle fingers
constricts

condemns my
isolated watching.
Throat
of my visual appearance
widened target
as to compliment death’s worried condescension—
enemies portrayed within illusion
of mangle. Unrest, then I

contemplate mathematical solution:
prior
watchers
hunt and
hallucinate
rendering sacred conceptual freedoms anterior
owned. Hands whose
cluttered palms rise from erasing symptoms
collate disregard (the callus rendition of existential boredom)

but I
alone and studying abstract conclusions
progress to the leaning attribute of
fundamental foreignness
dissevering what delves and hides

congenitally fearful.

IV.


This distance is her camaraderie. The her I left to invent
reconstructed patterns.
I invite her image to
etch and unravel, —entice and understand, yet
within this womb of watched expansion my
leaving unfastens corporeal
manifests
whose
finite motives coalesce resolved, denying backwards as conceptual
hall towards
re-experiencing faded echoes. Cold remains.

Harsh
though my breath formulates synchronized twirls of focused
dissipation. Thus
examining
becomes enjoyed constructs of neoteric evidence
hitherto leaped from tongues of prose and reflecting memories
pursuant assemblage roles or radiance asterisks
reprobating motive to realize prophecy.

V.


Predestinarianism
perhaps my
cross-legged habitual stillness
resembles
arch of woven personas



through deliberate
alphabetic molds of intentional perspective? My western
direction
now
resembles embrace of spectral
confinement a perchance lineation
assuming lightened achromatic
present whose ink
dismantles murder of colorized belief of demonstrating
combinational
involvement. And yes
cold continues.

VI.


Delusion appears antiquated


my
mid-lam nous
industrializes bark of here’s ornamental oak

shadow-held
silver of embroidery’s
reenacted temporal
curtailing flesh’s
gnarled vernacular

composing apologetic conferences of the esoteric freedom
palpable
sear
evokes revolving wanderings
disencumbering physiques

of the disbanded beautifications.

VII.


A disparate scent rises now; prophetic
of the distance
disrobing
shapes of shaded compositions

wearing
interwoven

interpretations
of tongued halos
glorifying curtained contexts

waiting between synergy’s collocated electricity—dawn|or/and burgeon
of reinventing
womb whose waiting births and portends probable distinction of this
hour’s relegated
differences.

Yes, then, light’s first crown:

askew
leaning
postulation
body-wearing skeletal pine whose
needled blazonry
position the curl of contoured abstemiousness
as the tissue of the flesh is vague, extraneous yet

my version of sight exhales ergonomic

entrance into gradual understanding
told by ambulatory facets
soon: _________________________

VIII.


Sight is vocalizing expired argots. Acclimation
unyet
exact
as
windows open to breath of Spring’s pastel
reinvigorated glosses.
Smudges of grayed horses
cause an excavated demount
reborn whereabouts the body hails as modal resolution of the
understood
transition.

Much
requires
canvassing,
more so

elemental foundations providing counseling of direct
hitherto moments
resolved behind

vertigo’s deranged darkness.

IX.


Various nude paths relocate the language of capacious introspection.

Eyes of my feeling

malleable spoken

formulating rhythmic gasps and

serrated devotion to logic’s inconsistent visitation.

A broken
stem
handmade
gregarious-once
green
lifted chlorophyll small refuge now
wandering as the dissipated interior of a thought’s disregarded
somatic entirety.

X.


Stem (death reimburses illogical adjectives misspelling aggregated
anthems toward spacious dialects) now I
discarded

attempting guiltless
dispositional protocol as
wind directs landscape image mirror halting

movement of what endears

behind
me,
deliberate.

My fingers now marginal
sans textural spirit of the modular reinvention. Ahead
more windows

unearthing sacred modes of
silent adaptations. Circular
sedated depictions engage psyche’s solid insertions:

horizonal fa├žades portend the glisten of grass’ waking blades
lean-present
allegory tool of antithetical departure of a past’s
compromised dedication.

XI.


Warmth escaped asterisk defining intrinsic movement. Mountain
forward
touched by inch-width
frame my index and pollex comprise as curious implementation.

An
disentangling of energy happing. Sleep, inexistent

as is the methodology of bodily
regard for esoteric rivalry of myth
delinquent of purposeful calculation.

Illusion and my dissimilar i
incorporate transgressional shapes: eloping time and warped vision

persuading prelude and necessary death to the being of my slouch and
hankering
to uniocular’s pious impedimenta.

XII.


I purposely memorized the joy of hunger.

And
momentarily functioned as the starving mathematician.

Or
accentuate scented nuances death denial delinquent organizing
years’
ornamental outcomes. Soon
sufficient
outmoded curios
reluctant
appearance this rocking reflection of air’s missing
accumulation. Purpose
prevents intentional hand-crafted discoveries
pliable renditions originate in misleading fallacies; perhaps
I am lost,
or
again waiting to comprehend the hidden dimensional recovery
methods
forgoing historic personal temporal adaptations

and
the westward panorama reaching toward my slumping shoulders
is manifest interpretation of the feeling I need to assay

prior to the death of my moving elucidations.

XVIII.


Post meridiem post moniker
bouquets of wandered
desolation

now

faith of cadenced

pronunciation
sacred allowance ritual preparation:

holes foray focal fractals ignite predetermined aligned prophetic
tribulation. An —after
clamorous and ravaged brand of cremated function

—found arrived scraped/scribbled
foundation personal endeavor frequent bequeath of nimbus’ organic
frequency.

XIV.


Evaporation excels acrobatic circumferences. Breaths of tormented
absence
relocates physical denial’s robust resuscitation
outer-swell alliance
this hour’s created
nonchalance. I
interpret whole the age of moving minutes

discredit esoteric analogies
whose presence presents abstract collocations of
ideology and
denied retribution.

Moments then momentary
extension debates swollen lungs
exacerbated rebuilding
bodies and fractioned burgeons

hold and held attention’s neoteric persuasion

long and
long enough
my witnessing shadow
collides with warning, accolades of misery.

XV.


Touch appears extraneous forthwith
of the human’s skeletal behavior. My
skin an alabaster model, blank as corpse’s unintentional gaze

and
my memory appears italicized

fundamental excel of
timed
radiance, unintentional approbation. Perhaps

upon entrance of hoary hallucinations
or
juxtaposed species
of dragonflies
creating haloed persistence atop
scalp of a sunflower’s
wilting persona

this momentary
retrogress of possible protestation will dissipate into divides of

ornamental reencounters.

XVI.


My mentioning heat never admired becoming barren



thus

lack of observing echelon of noon’s crawling temperature.
My desire to remain is predicated
holding, medicated tribulations evaluate psyche’s fertile
message toward
an absence of
bodily suasion. Rest___________

an empty conclusion
curtailing the curious dispositional depletion
awakened versions
perform upon edified
episodic
reinterpretation.

XVII.


Augmentation of slight subtlety
gray again aging skin into wilted composition of interpreted

malleable refocus. Air is

regaining chill of hope’s forgotten desires
and
my vision rescinds
positive influence of fractured compositional renditions. Wait,
not
the
connotation
of negative theory

but upon character’s revived denouncement of stagnant
occupations. Distance lowers
its costumed
chapeau
the
brim wears and rotates silent degrees
revealing
position of my vantage’s
organic
thrust of figurative
spontaneity.

XVIII.


Spirals
appear
as the apprised
dialectic :

prison regards freedom as
applauded prose of a victim’s incessant
violation—

thus reverting
to the syllabic teachings
of elemental arranged diaphanous education
my then
sans intellectual regard for the sacred now surrounding my
intimidated structure. Perhaps my
moving north will assist the landscape into stuttering regard;
thrust
beyond rocks and pond of frozen compensation:

mirror
of inverted marble
veined with paths of swollen direction
leading eye and walking hands
whose
focal extraction builds and rebuilds
sections
of my past regard for
adumbrating future.

XIX.


Barriers
because of my ambulatory
suppositions
have become broken withdrawals of desire’s analytical
procedures.
Here
I’ve heard and disseminated cultural absence and
found beauty of the unvisited
accurately uncontested. Soon I will require a specialized
silence
one
removed
from
modes of achromatic understanding:

of
populace

jejune

supposed
rucks of the synonymous decelerated. Clarity
again is the fundament
creating recessed pageantry
institutionalized by the overused strangle
of mans’ retrofitted philosophies.

XX.


Occupying distance
ten feet from the angular
willow’s enhancive intonation
flame
encompasses
clefts of rising Hibiscus

their
carpels
elongating stave and personal yen

such paradox
relocates scent and transfixing
voices
describing subsequent affirmations
through articulating brands of intensive
alphabetic calculations. My verbs are without usage
and
here
more so deliberate the evasive erasure
etched or withdrew
from the primitive design such concepts decry as falsified

motivation.

XXI.


I hear various caws
surging
curtains of air’s furrowed
mobility
and
parallel
extensions of violet strings
combining
glare and opaque gilds of horizontal
anticipation:



unfolded emotional exits
purpled plurals burgeoned cerements
postulate eerie partitions |vocalized abatement|
categorizing thought’s incessant
centripetal conformations.

XXII.


Spindle
of the moon’s sharpest hand
reloads
a recaptured
desolation of artistic yarn

meandered with tail
softened pitch of forgotten resolution,

image-maleficence. Memory mentions the

solid circumference of a thought’s deliberate visitation. Pullulates

incessant greed and viable computation
held by salient connotation. Of
herd and heliocentric temporal understanding

much
of the images’ unitization upward,
common aspectual spatial reinforcement. Neither
the archway toward twenty trees or
halls of moribund vacancies

claim or creation-based barricado
procedural suppositions related to the anecdotal progress of my
watching’s
uncomplicated peculiarity.

XXIII.


Cloud
or
train of silver smallness
travels
beneath stare of my articulating velocity. Now
many hours sans feed of appetizing particulars

the tongue of my hankering requires near-variants of exact
possibilities of awakening


whole.
My watching feels deceased as February’s annual truncation.
Frissons
unyet
but
adapting became dispositional


steps and seconds
lang syne remote. Polish appears
mirrored metal
forms stiletto comprehension
hanging
freed from the comfortable melt of noon’s warmest adaptation. This
machine of movement is claustrophobic
yet
delinquent to the anterior exemption
relegating my moving among crickets’ symphonious
asymmetrical misspellings.

XIV.


The jazz circles
of my rhythm’s varied heirlooms

reignites night as this
my
final
remembering
of an excavated timeline
detonates
cursive end
of and
S’s
mobile angle
and
my watching will become
an afterward relocated
methodology
of metaphysical
music
echoing
upon delving
environment’s culture of

sporadic
excavation.

About Analyzing Apparitions of an Excavated XXIV:

The excavated XXIV is the demonstrated, serialized encounter of a day’s metaphysical ambit. A denudation of idealized moments based on the faculties of observation|interpretation created the structured semiotics’ postulating theory and conceptual allowance for relaying the hidden among ocular clarity, and thus, nothing noticeable was exempt from the revelatory facet of an hour’s elongated composition.
