gesture

 

confined to a wall

limits of original language

iteration

head or hand

 

human form, architect

the collarbone,

linear air

 

in shadow,

tender, and

thrumming, a half lit

halo dances along the wall

 

why follow one source?

 

pattern of sound,

a hand waves the air

 

spider’s web thin–

juncture, a note

 

identity

notions of distance

notions of distance

 

whispers

 

where the body hurts,

pattern experience

 

an attempt is only to live

as someone else,

to extend—

an outline of the unknown

 

you sound out the remnant

the brief

figure—

 

passing through the room

an apostrophe interlopes

an alphabet

 

the top curvature of a cloud

 

news breaks whether or not

 

arbitrary reading from left to right

and down

 

a distinct echo

 

hands and mouths,

layers of gods

 

lightning from behind the mesa

 

emergent

notions of distance

 

 

 

borrowed language

borrowed language

 

a glimpse from the week’s

epilogue

 

commute sentences

under dusk cloud’s

motion

 

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

grow

 

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

floats

 

an evolution among words

displace above our heads,

move at their own will,

seek rogue poems
