Synaesthesia

Figure in space
color vivid, tracing circles in the darkness
Graceful arabesque
graduated from the tedious realm of linearity
the ritual formality of periodicity
Figure dynamic, moving and alive,
what numbers trace your pattern?
What music is described by your rotation?
For this is the heart of longing.

What thou lovest well
is thy true heritage
What thou lovest well
shall not be reft from thee
— Ezra Pound
