echoic

echoic

 

incubate words in a bird’s

heart, where O

a discourse marker,

O of recognition,

round and flexible,

to shape a nest,

to live

 

black-red blood of the plum,

ephemeral, contained

by thin skin

 

an eternal child

self

 

makes gesturing hands

human–

motor skills

to carry and crack

an egg

 

plum, your limb

is my limb, contin

ues more limbs, two

of us drawn upward

as go and wend merge to

went

 

undulates vocables of Ur names,

now live on the slate, a trader’s

slang

 

sealed into clay,

opened only

after

the voice
