borrowed language

borrowed language


a glimpse from the week’s



commute sentences

under dusk cloud’s



we’ve lost some words

while we prepare for saturdays’ sleep—


welkin, wellaway,

where- and forthwith


between breaths, unsaid


we know future

as “up”, due to

heightened field

in which objects

we approach



while we half-talk half-

eat at the table,

the light outside changes—

honeyed light rises

through the roots of grass blades, up

through the trunks of weed

trees, and in distant heights,

the orchard’s unripe fruit



an evolution among words

displace above our heads,

move at their own will,

seek rogue poems
