glass + fragment

glass + fragment

 

temporary verse, an avenue

look sideways, no one returns a look

dark shapes glide across the glass

 

possess or interpret the gesture,

only edges are visible

tremor, a sudden thought

of relation

 

lost in reflex—stand mirror to an eye.

 

Car

after car drifts past, the carriage

of untelevised moments,

thus accidental,

sequence.

 

(the interior

of a window

its own

narrowed

world)

 

at times a tree bends or a window directly across hides a world it’s Chinatown a lady’s on the roof hanging laundry it just started to snow tv news reflected on the inside smoke has engulfed the yard or pigeons on a wire in the country they say doves a dog paws a cool place to press the whole body to the earth the glint of memory engulfs the mind, again and again and again

far from home

far from home

 

as a post script, cancellation

of all the words that were beneath us, holding

us

 

in the absorbed refrain or diameter,

feels her feet walk

a circle around the open lot

 

it’s the super moon

provokes unresolved thoughts—

imperceptible chords, myco-

rrhizae

 

answer by walking through dividing lines—

 

a fence no longer functions

to remind her who she is not

 

“across the de-mystified

teleologic field, a disruption”

 

“she responded to the boundary’s in/flected whisper

born from homespun daydream”

 

continuity to come undone–

gesture that involves an Other

 

a vowel opening leads to diminution

of a wire

 

—the grammar

of the gatherer—artifacted

thought lines—twigs and stones,

small bones

 

cause a fall–

outside the perimeter

 

as there is a principle

nested in the body

becomes windblown,

a force directs her

farther afield
