The Fiction and Poetry of Jason Thibeault

Down And Between The Spaces

Unintended words ( ) reveal
beguiling consequences.
We speak
we write
language makes us.
Courage mustered ( )
everything left…
Subtlety embraced
like a fissure,
exposed by
the glare of revelation.
( ) happenstance
that mocks us with each syllable,
or is it part of the design?
Biting, cutting, jarring,
loving, tender, supportive,
when uncovered ( )
like a treasure of uncertainty;
so familiar,
we covet the diadem ( )
of knowing,
a golden fleece ( )
warding against so much
space inbetween
