The Hydrocephalic

The Hydrocephalic

the palsy initiates while platelettes still knit
nacreous fingernails and skin of vellum

a holler that will echo and become a constant humm
encumbers the life of the hydrocephalic
born with an excess of marmoreal bulge in frontal skull
eyes of tourmaline hues fixedly aimed in a deferential stare

movements transposed to a centimetric scale
all aspects en retard, remaining intact
this, the meaning and true expression of slowness
