noon skipping

︎︎︎ daniel ward

︎ JULY 8, 2022

in your hands of countless rehearsed miracles

waiting for permission

like a beat

or a whistle

sound is constant

and we just wait for the measure like a rope

given to the concrete

and always late

and count again to invert my hand from its place

as the memory of sound


into basic servitude

then chaotic soul
