fire stoking

in

the wine

now my heart is red,

a shadow in my hand unfolding.

(azeda booth)

my love goes in and out of me,

(azeda booth)

my love is going.

a room in the turning sheets,

now

a moon in the trees,

a shadow unfolding in my hand,

the light falling on the leaves

and the moon in the tangled trees unfolding.

what sudden leap

from here to there

what sudden leap

a hare

a small wind blows

a small wind blows

a small window closed

1

I am going

To the edge

Of the curtain

From the edge

Of the bed

Where you are

Sleeping.

Where I was sleeping with you.

I have come from

The sheets and

Followed the soft

Light out of

The room

Into the light

Of another

Room,

With the cool

Shadows remembering

You in bed pushing

Yourself toward

Morning like a

Little boat on

A soft lake out

From the shore,

But I close the door

And watch you

Turnover in

The light.

A wet towel is hanging from a bar

In the bathroom.

And the tub is full of hairs.

I am very sleepy.

A slug melts in salt.

Dirty dishes in the sink.

What did I eat today?

But a long robe is hanging

On the chair.

And I am only waiting for someone else

To talk.

5

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.

oppositions and wind

 

1

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.

7

Bathing come

Going bathing a

(Jump and jump)

Come and going

Bathing a bathing a

(jumping)

Come bathing a going

(jump jump)

Bathing leap.

8

When ear

Well here

Well or

A or a

Ear well

Here mumbling.

9

Heaped wind on

As tree leaves

Suddenly tree leaves

Heaped and

Returning.

10

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.

12

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.

15

& found

Your letter, but

With others gathering

Dust.  So

And so says

“hi.”

Fanfare for Pouring Rain 2

And now the rain

And now

Now

The rain

            Which is and is

            A thousand things

Falls and falls

Everywhere and all around,

Down through the soft

Movement of trees

And lifting

And touching

Leaves,

Falling and falling

And everywhere and all around

Falling and falling

Everywhere.
