Synthesis (sin’-the-sis): An apt arrangement of a composition, especially regarding the sounds of adjoining syllables and words.

I will will to be—so free to be the sign on the wall, a waterfall, a song singing softly at the edge of what you said right before we went to bed and slipped along the sloping night, the holy night, the gauzy night, hot and not, and never right—together, two feathers flicking off the stars, touching each other’s scars in the dim honesty of darkness and the healing glow of sleep.
