Contents:
Pale fingers
Sky speaks
My pleasures inventoried
The hill's grasses
A breeze
Walked barefoot
I was dragging a ladder
Only gray rocks with drifting mist
Basin of hills
The chainlink
Like water spiders
Any object inclines away
With practice
Just lean against the wallpaper
Nearness is
The vertebrae achieved
My stammering mind
Shaded but not rested
Just long enough
Here again is the counting of linoleum
Breadcrumbs
A pleasure to rub
My new skin
I saw the window
I might travel his death
My father's dying makes stairs
There are no words
Here I place
There are thoughts
Sieved the stillness
The driver wasn't
A gnat
I add brush-strokes
Though my first foray
It was once believed
The sun setting
An aimlessness
Attempting again proximity
There was no moment
Silently my father's dying
Wind is
The petals of poppies
Sullenly disposed
The coat-rack's narrow
Tasted a weedy
The rustle of a Sunday bundle
Fill a page
To set the table as if
I throw a stone into air
Not simply to lie on grass
Elaborately frilled edge
How to hold what remains
For months after his death.
