The Patience of Affixes

1 May 2018

Within the half-life of affixes
in the grey gap between pre- -suf
are thoughtlings swimming to the surface.
In winter needs must break the ice with battered noses.
In summer they leap and dive with paeanismus tails.
In breeding season they lay blue eggs:
un- closes shells, com- opens, em- -en squeeze the juices.
In time they mature to -ful
then beach to wait some more
