2021 NaPoWriMo April 1 I could be that

Prompt: “derange yourself” Animated version of “Seductive Fantasy” by Sun Ra and his Arkestra

I could be that

dots dashes splashed
over a canvas
loose notes
do-re-mi dotted
on parchment

undecided
undecodable

until phantasy blood
clots discernable
outlines

until I sketch myself
back
into existence yet

mirror’s changed
yields unknown
black
other
no memory refrain

I gape

then pull that
face
over mine
fingertips
flat palm
smoothe it tight

feel

breathing’s
changed
lump in throat

dare I
ever
acknowledge
