The Alchemist Takes His Leave

Poetry

A poem by Prartho.

well

 

the elegant pitcher falls

emptiness

everywhere

* * * *

how quiet
the water
just before boiling

* * * *

You have carved me out
so deeply
soon I’ll be able
to swallow the sky.

* * * *

a well-cleaned fruit seed
falls on the page

is that you
in the trees
savoring the cherries?

* * * *

now
all
my
questions
will
be
pebbles
dropped
into
a
bottomless
well:

not

one

plunk
