this cornerstone
through your death and dying
build another

bridging
your ashes and mine

quite

Bhikku says

pluck out your desire
devote yourself
to peace.







moving forward

it has occurred to me that
the circumstances of
my inner economy
of my new navigation
could be inexplicably difficult to explain

last

the shoe
sprung
toward
the state of things
was somehow left behind
or perhaps is

the sole survivor.
my hands and feet turn blue

bellweather

butterfly extremities

that lift
the cold hearted
the cruel spring

and move warm inland

hypothetical

an unreal
murmuration

is it?

remains to be

hypothetically
