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

Words as blades

words as blades

 

How to count–

ena, pena,

 pera, pedera

notches in bone-time

 

count each word among the cut

among the weather voice,

millenia-high cloud

to earth hard

hand held knife.

 

Glint not a word, glint

liquid, or liquid-sharp points

through sinew.

 

 

 

 

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
