transcription poem 49
SHADOWS BLINKBLINK FIDDLEHEADS SPINE AS I COME CLOSE CLOSER TO A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF GREEN/ BY WHICH I MEAN — THIRSTY, SPILLING THAT CATCHES, THE BELLY OF EARTH WHERE WE BURIED THE GARLIC WHERE THE LIGHT SWITCHES OUT WHAT I AM

still life / still light / still / still
a brother reads at a table, last of the solstice curling into his hair curling into his ear. maple eye-buckets, spit-glossed mouth, cheek a soft i know i’ll never be able to paint

advent
the sky dilutes a clementine rolls a brother
sings a sound for something else to be born in
