54. Couplets

.

It begins
with the smallest

thoughts
submergent

parts
& partitions

temblors
of the body

directives
in darkness

flashing of lights
where there are none

turbid northern
night

the distinction between
heat and humid

leaves in
a handful

a book
of trees

orientation then
ratiocination

what the blood
means when

the blood
won’t move

or moves
too much

heart
of dark

lakelight
evening’s

stormcloud dragging
its black drape of rain

the sound
of sorrow

dog’s yawn
more smell than sound

breath taken
at first waking

breath given
before sleeping

the sound it is given
is of the voice or if

caution
before oration

reading the
veins of it

and raining
in black drops

a night like
tomorrow

according to
the best practices of

a whiff
then a wiggle

turn and burn
and vision

world and self
into salt

delectable to
the tongue as sound

texture
to the touch

back bending
away

soles of the feet
don’t survive the body

a flicker
a flutter

at the last point possible
but without the purchase of success

plunge into
plunge out of

in about at
from around for

tincture
of trickle or tickle

the final deliquescence
of the body

what eradicates
the past

eradicates
the future

it ends
with the largest

thoughts
emergent
