A Blinding Refrain

Tuning letters like strings

the words are reformed

The rhyme and the meter

the rhythm reborn


Each vowel and each consonant

together in line

No commas or periods

to block or confine


The meaning inherent

and left unexplained

restated once over

a blinding refrain


To put in the file

the future in bold

the verses in couplets

—the reading on hold


(Dreamsleep: May, 2022)
