See      a          table

Simply              on

A table,                        now,

Now

What                is,

Is

It but a table

Now.  But a table.

Someone left the low, awe, lights on the walls.

They leave

noises

with them.

The ceilings are left open.

Not to

mention

you breathing in the stove,

Plath.

Picking apples from

the eating worms

Thinking

what don’t I mean

dirt.

Listening to the radio or

stereo.                                                                                Sounds better.

42.

long(wish)ingly.

The pillow smells like hair.
O,
The windowsill is wet.

A puddle of rain from yesterday
Is drying
In
It.

after cummings and a moon

 

Isn’t it just

A moon?

Varyly big

Is only in sky

Behind the

Glowing and

Unlit clouds

It moves

Through

And all

The color

Now of

Darkest

Blue

On edges

White lined

Seems to,

Little by

Very little

Move.

It is a wish

Unwished

And pulled

From the

Candled now

Of sky

And I have

Given it to

You

And you

Have given

It its name:

A full

And round

And lovely

Moon.

Know that is

Light slides down

The shadowed wall

And that curved tongue

Pressed a measured palm in

Or each leaning kiss is given once and

Taken back again.  I’m saying said this once.

2

Material of

Thickest paper and

Arm a full now rose

Revolving of red.

3

Standard o say

You are missing in

Setting.

Clear.

4

Meadow now

And again comes

Meadow all white

And snowing some.

5

All through forth

Shattered light

Down

And

Out of the trees

Birds spread

Slowly round.

6

Either I am

A kind of toiled

Ending of windows or

With each thought I

Go out into the light and come back in again.

Bathing come

Going bathing a

(Jump and jump)

Come and going

Bathing a bathing a

(jumping)

Come bathing a going

(jump jump)

Bathing leap.

When ear

Well here

Well or

A or a

Ear well

Here mumbling.

Heaped wind on

As tree leaves

Suddenly tree leaves

Heaped and

Returning.

Owl

Who

An owl

Who

(In the dark tree)

Turns round its head

Round and who

reaches into

The night to tear away a mouse.

11

Have me

In coming and going

Curtains in windowing

In

Again

Have me

Again.

In some     awful

And           only                                               way

Other        howl

Goes heavy a shade across the yard silently now,

Some awful other standing near leering and In

Some        awful

And           only

Other way standing and I. 

13

Awe me

In new clothes

Pretending a dream.

14

I have given you a forest made

From my hand a forest and

Given it to you.

& found

Your letter, but

With others gathering

Dust.  So

And so says

“hi.”

spring

When love is

More is

Moved

To

Meaning in

Trees

And

Leaves

And

Wind

Then

When loves is

More in

Trees

And

Leaves

And

Wind

I am moved to

Meanings more in

Trees

And

Leaves

And

Wind

For love is

And

Is

And

Is

Again.
