As what used to be
And what will be
Blend along blurred lines
The resonance of each
Appear to be what is.

The present feels fragile
Sheer and opaque
As what is visible
And what is perceived
Are diametrically opposed.

Along the subtext
Parallel to semantics
Adjacent to syntax
Cowers the poet,
Constantly chastised
Eager to play among the dialect
Stuck in neither time nor space
Delicately brushing concepts
With an insatiable desire
To transmit beauty
From prose
Into reality.

-Vanessa Hernandez
