index iv.

 

relationship of two

vanishing points when a person looks

directly toward the center of a room

 

location and characters

converge

 

when two persons look directly

toward the center of a room

may be unified in scale

and hour

 

but not to endure, a location

where imitable habits of grandparents

that to live, are no longer

 

the new picture requires

rearrangement of vanishing points

minus a referent

 

requires a diet

of the next

favorite show

of salt, newsprint,

apple juice, a slice of Wonder

 

time passes quickly, for an eternity

 

on its side, a shelter can be decorated

with bricks for furniture, inside, strings for a guitar,

a table with removable segments,

a partial collection of puzzles and card games

 

layers of carpet and red brick,

formica, hand sewn fabrics,

wires behind drywall, and a roof

joins the house

to the sky

 

the area outside the frame

viewed with the so-called corner of the eye,

as an entity in itself

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

neighbor

neighbor

 

the dawn walk—

not yet fully

bodied

 

remember, now

as the season of crows

 

a hand in similar

shape, but

close

 

*

 

behind fences,

they do

what they want

 

no consequence

 

(voices whisper

otherwise

 

*

 

the old Mason—

granddaughter in a princess cart,

together on the dirt road

 

I have questions

about the density

of matter

 

of hands holding

genetic pattern

 

*

 

plants push limits, repeat

limbs in fractals

 

till they feel enough

the sky

 

ladders, the product

of a finite will

 

there may be a shadow

in this yard

that joins us

there
