HEART THREAD: A Fugue, Part Six


Empty wineglass in the other’s hand
haven’t felt this free in weeks
yellow fruit smatter of purple finches
legitimate inferences from the sciences
how little we kiss
could you build a car from scratch
a jet engine even a radio?
we have so much and know so little
it’s all just put in our hands
no wonder a devil
hide in the attic
archaic paperweight family Testament.
