EGO ET TU (I’m With You)

ABSTRACT POETRY: Verse that makes little sense grammatically or syntactically but which relies on auditory patterns to create its meaning or poetic effect; Dame Edith Sitwell popularized this term and considered this verse form the equivalent of abstract painting.

For a while
For a while
Unlike waking from a dream
Going into one
Taking pleasure
No apology
Lingering abed
Night slipping
Into day
Into night
Spending time
Until the end
Emptying memories
Into weightlessness
For a while
For a while
