disinter
Around and around we go
Belly up afloat
Caught in a gaze and lonesome
In currents of wilted air.
Imbibed by the bribe
From our scribers scribe
Around you round me stowed
Gliding by.

Between the worm and the berry
The horse and the clamp
Between the cloves and the cloth
The rot and bran
Between the claws and the post
The tracks and the tank
It chirps
All of the time.
Gliding by
Glide
Gliding by
Glide

Aloof, adrift
We are ghost white opercula
Insolvent milt in mono
Marrow’s slow slip show.
Blackbirds and the sky
In the stocks are tied
Rain down in the new year
Outside the window
Gliding by
Glide.

Between the worm and the berry
The horse and the clamp
Between the cloves and the cloth
The rot and bran
Between the claws and the post
The tracks and the tank
It chirps
All of the time
Awaiting:
The mouse and the stream
The blade and the shield
Between the robe and pole
The wave and beatings
Between the word and trade
The herd and web
It chirps
All of the time
Gliding by.

Around and around we go
This dizzying vertigo
A wind kicked stringless kite
Awaiting flight.
