Blue and green sentiments

Well, howdy. Here’s another instalment in my Ties that Bind series. I haven’t really dropped the theme on here, haven’t I?

Here’s an old knit skinny tie that I thrifted a long time ago, lined like the malachite stones on these bracelets.

Amid the blues and the greens, I feel fidgety, impatient at the slow rate of growth.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_04

No one ever said that change would be smooth as sailing.

Am almost tempted to wear a tie every single day, after our company HR released another memo reminding employees on proper office attire.

Would I dare, like TS Eliot, bring moments to their crisis?

I’ve done enough daring the past few years, beltless that I was.

Now it’s time to come in full braid, faultless and silent.

Oh, Rimbaud, to burn in your patience.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_11

Will I ever live to see your Splendid Cities?


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_12

I fidget too much, I complain, I scratch my head.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_13

But I march on.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_14

Oh, to be steady as sandstone, and build layer by layer.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_15

Even while, as I stare at the sky, molten rock shifts the plates that I stand on.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_16

Deliver me from this impatience. Fill my plates to the brim.


El-Bosquejo_Cameo_100515_17

Before I smash the china on the marble.
