parts

hers
a child's body broken like a doll
an arm
a sealed pubic mound
left among pages of an illustrated book
dessicate
a beige, brittle cruel dream

his
a leaning garage he's painting
in November
with a clumsy man
who falls into an icy pool
and topples into a neighbor's fence
the garage will fall
he tells me after waking

light sensitive
full of liver
lessening tumors

second
slender toxic filament
finds him

scrimmed
under water

third
exposed
unfolding
narrative



drawn

to water
the

the rill
the fountain's frisson
the reason
for
stone
canyons
arroyos
flooded
fields
of rice

paper

drawn

after wane

rain.

what love drives me to be still
when within I cry out
weeping into my hands?

boat

1000
copper clad
and green
wishing your life
afloat.

seamus

dug through life
unafraid
returned to
ground

peat driven, loved.

the clearwing

sun humming
a probiscis unfurled
into
into
the hottest day's flowers
reminds one
of other
delicate winged
dreams
