HEART THREAD: A Fugue, Part Five


Headlines from harmony — are you awake?
bulletin for a coward
chisel made of alphabets
blissman Africa Blueland blooming
a conga-line of white-collar mercenaries
old movies tell new truths
fold yourself back into fable
the feasts of Magdalen
on your white napkin I wipe my bloody lips
downstairs curtains in the rain
the sound of wet wood
hypothetical distances.
