delayed gratification

“There’s always a lot to do before you get to go to heaven.”
— Octavia Butler, Parable of the Sower

Lee Kun-Yong : Logic of place, 1975

when the sun sets pink, orange, and red
broken moving clouds spread
like velvet like compulsion
action stretches idle       smooth

reading read is different from hearing read spoken
or why I adore hiding words in my throat

formerly private as guilt
  what came first
sky
        or water

wanting then waiting, again
thinking she couldn’t handle it

altered
like states of being with
    or without you

regenerative as loops of believing in a tomorrow
or knowing patience brokers its own rewards
