from the inside of the follow on piece to the previous post

My unexpected alone only suffers being I.
I’m keep writing and...
Feels, saw, looked, could rock face stare back;
its it open the a sky;
the children sat seeing there from worldless the cries here,
not red fire in voices: a the from inside everywhere.
Clock the in numbers, my been world if me part the these distant visible don’t spent simple.
Loss, mostly astonishing, says matter heart.
A I my these betrayed nothing now the see vacant light years.

in progress [edited to progressed]

A LINK to a document - a work in progress. I think I will record it read aloud, it might become less work in progress then.
I'm making this link because I get frustrated with formatting on blogger! And the writing is then as I experience it - on an A4 page [in this case] of sorts, despite being a screen and the size of the page is mutable

when is a line a drawing? when is it a string of words? what does it say? how does it say it? does it hang just outside comprehension? pegged onto dreams and missmelled memories?

a word, just one word: llym

llym 1. strict adj. keen adj. acute adj. severe adj.
llym (bad tempered, spiteful) 2. vicious adj.
llym (taste, smell) 3. poignant adj.

I became caught up in a word yesterday. In the context that I found it - llym y llygaid: eyes, for lesser celendine - what does it mean? The petals are sharp, perhaps keen. Or could there be a moment of synesthesia: taste and smell transposed to sight?
