What is a belf?

What’s a belf

set against

set next to

a self?

Is belf a word?

Is belf a state?

Is belf another

way to say the same?

Olive trees scrape

against the skin

pleasantly in a

dream mother runs

alongside me.

I explain mother

to others.

When nights and days

are swapped ghosts

like belfs

keep company.
