Words or bones

Words or bones

 

all answers dream

undivided

 

and still,

only a fragment blue

of the sky

is possible

in each moment

 

in the hand,

a portion of time

for this pursuit—

 

to give,

dig deep,

 

give marrow,

 

give hunger’s

blueprint

 

give space between words

that make words

 

is this

enough?

 

The hand

punctuates deep

enough to shape

nourish

ment

 

latent

with the code for sweetness,

or sharp, bitter and

pulled from a deeper

source

 

a priori

a priori

 

not so evident in the boundary

of my skin

 

the dawn toll

 

a (mis) nomer

 

fed to the city noise

an other—

 

*

 

a ruthless calm

 

within the stagnant

fountain, miniscule

creatures move

 

they listen with their feet

 

all the manmade

hollows, the cobbled

secret, the causeway,

the dead wires

 

–vacancy

 

and nothing to fill it—

 

*

 

the dreamed incident

totters and tilts

 

(             how I do neglect

my origins)

curate

curate

 

at odds on the landscape,

between here and the wellpump

 

what have you

may be enough

 

*

 

 

unwrap the remainder—

how many years now?

descent

of the gift into

memory

 

*

 

 

the point in question was not—

outside of doors,

the home state

changed

 

not the Place,

 

the feeling

 

*

 

 

at the first snow fall,

lines on her hands

unreadable

 

it’s not the matter.

who curates the fixity?

 

directed from within

 

 

uncertain the fate

 

of these trees
