Caterpillars
—a poem by Christopher Suda

Between Jazz & the Blues



The vein caterpillars up,

sucks it down through a glass

straw, then we vanish. Its bliss,
by the mean of memory can not

be resurrected, only performed.
Perhaps no different from death

since itself, too is unimaginable. Others pick
and choose but I can’t.

Angels visit through the doors, observe
the war, (discuss the next) then move

on by foot—wingless as always. While
leaving, one articulates ‘effort’. Farther

wins out each stretch.  The photograph is said
to depict a sturdy image of time—So will I.
