In the middle

intermediate
in the middle
amidst, among
and between
hung out to dry
and happy to see you,
neither exactly
awash nor afloat
in the flowing in
between who tells what
and who sees who(m);
I dabble in grammar
even in idiomatic
conversation
gathering nuance
mood and half-thought
into piles of cliches
burning bridges
over roiling waters;
this clutter of words
may almost be real
-I hear breathing
(metaphorically)-
from mewling to moaning
which sings a little
song before nightfall
where they live
in the midst
of before to become.
