Corundum

corundum

 

i.

under the root,

the ant cities explode

 

ii.

all weighs less at the dawn

moment: the unhomed

heart, even grave

goods; dawning and its polar,

dusk, weigh less. Lineage,

less. Less, as,

an,

o

 

iii.

“control of resources

of empire”—what else

to display?

 

iv.

song threads sung

while weaving are pre-

sequent; a tune

or gesture exposed

to elements decipher

threadbare

 

v.

lack of bronze vessels

does not convey,

alas; useful

only as new forms

 

vi.

does this mean we know

how to lose control? Measure

from center, as the edges have no

descendant

 

vii.

new growth imperceptible

as light interrupts planes; one

by one, orthogonal events

become permanent
