gesture

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

prospects

prospects

 

evidence of predators

along the fence line—

 

their songs travel among

weeds, burrow

alternate paths

 

parallel shapes

settle,

 

overlays

confuse the lyric

I become entranced

with cast shadows—though

who will believe—

 

dimensions

unfold themselves

 

as a word

spoken

 

glints in the light

 

small to large

to small again

 

*

echoes both hands

in a cooling trend

 

the verge

of a complicated

sleep

 

 

*

 

from atop a boulder,

scanning the paths

for even a glimpse
