has yet to catch up with me
A thousand books & the sand gravel combed into
wave patterns between stones
Something I heard about Japanese grammar?
the spacing itself is persuasive enough
(iron fish. whalebone hammer.
Thomas Pynchon. a kind of bird.)
Reading by the light of the plasma screen
doesn’t rule out candles
Some Words For Joanne Elizabeth Kyger:
feathers clench torrential
baleen shreds encumber
crepuscular Vermeer albacore bottlecaps
flesh on the bone
water on the brain
