Modulation becomes a route
of connections, attaching
irreducible qualities to words
sensations wrought into metaphor
unique syntactic sequences
closing psychic proximities
within amplitudes modulated
potential of the thought’s tenor
riding the general idea measured
as signs change in view of land
lamps lit, hearts rejoiced, oriented
anew upon open space, under
cloud closed sky, as our boat
vacillated between hope and despair.
