144. Fifty Lines and a Half of Half-Thoughts

lower and lighter and
left

what does the l stand
for?

running in place for you are already
there

territory without the
fear

a song of longing for
it

distress along the edge of
face

in what water word’s
sung

a drink both sweet and
strong

enticing alluring eventually
filled

crescent of a road or
light

fingering the flesh of
here

burst by breathing out through
word

courage of the medium as
paint

paper as panting for
words

the sound before its
scent

crush rumple crinkle
burnt

at the count of the thought of
three

the lens soft and brown as a cooked
lentil

seeing through an eye to
mud

pulling to lengthen to
come

organ of sight or
slightness

hers in the sense of
yours

knot in the neck and a
neckline

pulse braced against the
bracelet
twisted into his or a
fist

deliberate errors and
ardors

living as a wasted
reed

breeze from the east but
backwards

the tapping of the typing of
tipping

what fell over to replace the
shadow

concupiscent as a custard of
egg

glistening head and the winds
before

and then five laughing with
mouths

song surrounded by tile for the
sound

echo person for herself or
him

a song sung as if within a
church

the crutch in the crotch of a
tree

what holds warm at the place of the
meeting

not too long but long enough to
be

ringing in the ears like dog’s
breath

broth and breathing and
warmth

cold in the place of
floor

hands cupped around an
emptiness

distilled quelled gelled and
felled

the curve backwards of the back of the
chair

ever so slightly
so

click so tick a clock or
tock

o’sweet verity of my time of
loss

taught in the manner of the sudden flight of
pheasants

knees upon the floor of your
heart
