A Liminal Being Without a Lucid Self





















Few people notice you in the way

they fail to see the storm cloud

that creates the lightning.


Fewer people listen

because you lose the urge to speak

in the way thunder does not sound

without a lightning flash.


So, you put your self back on and utter,

and many see you sputter, but still

do not lend an ear


because the storm cloud is too far

and though its current reaches,

its thunder does not adhere.
