[[...of an exiting Neruda ]].

    a niche in the pavement,
black hat head-spun southward
              onlooker

in glassy trill, the din of clock &
        springtime sprig snap
or that of an existing wound--
            intimate passerby:

     a shadow musician
accustomed to striking bow
along alley corridors


with hands & heart you
      greet him
   expecting a great
   performance;
 a spectacle

     you’ve only once
         encountered

from a bird, dusky nightingale,
     who sung mournfully
     through the salty spray
              of the sea.

The Man Who Breaks Dimensions...


in his mouth,

            gives the sun its violent luster      ──He who

marks  the blistered streets of December

in his eyes                        &   births the new snow's

    wonderment                   ──He  stirs up windows,   dusty floors,

     calls to bones a grip of    

                    voiceless somewhere    ──He evaporates


on weathered skin,                  calls to it a sheath

                                                     of longing

  

                                             ***

                         & now it is Summer again
                    & now the navel yearns for spit
           

             He reflects the New World with corruptless eyes
          
      & moves onto a canvas                made of moonlit starvation
 

 believing this desolate island   

                                                                   is a smaller town


         much smaller than pores

                                         or his lover's hands

                 
full of gravity,     little grains

                   wrapped  in womb


                                      of finality

Catawba

from Breaking the Bird's Beak Hymen


 
 
                  Every night
 
                                a pooling of blood
 
         or exsanguinated
                                     
      the spilt seed


 
 
                         by morning
 
       how clean            the sparrow
 
 
                   divine its feathers
 
 
 
 
               a child
