Before after came
it took some time to remember
which, of course, came before
now was ever formulated
Supposedly, depending on circumstances,
once upon a time
was reading this
before the story’s ending was
like a grin without a face
or a tear without an “I”
as what was up
Note: Buffalo Treehopper… The eye is not a double-exposure; that is how the eye and eye edge actually look.

Constant desire is the crutch of a very broken and injured mind.
[Buffalo Treehoppers are aptly named for their hornlike projections, which suggest a buffalo’s horns. Female Buffalo Treehoppers make crescent-shaped slits in young plant stems to lay their eggs. The larvae are a pale green and are covered with short spines.]
