To Emily

You found a Dash
that stitch – of Thread
while first writing
a Letter –

later – you mused on the pure
Immortality – of a Page –
folded – into Envelope
an incarnation

of Consciousness –
some italic seed
that Blossoms into firmaments –
of Cloud – or Galaxy

not for publication
or fame – or for some – Demon –
but because you found
that Originary word –

that began all things –
that continues – to Ferment
throughout – the Kneaded –
Imagination
