missing places never been
dissolving footstep mathematics
bringing leaf sheets
edges on a wild calendar
for sleeping through
into wide open suns
past wingbeats
that are all you can do
to keep the dragonfly propeller
out of your matted words

exhaust from this
fortune’s fumes
eradicate witnesses
to this here calliope cashing in
but don’t look down
it’s the first to instate
the feeling that secrets
with a life of their own
don’t own the heart
or the tendrils of this radioactive
forest speaking

smooth apologies
for riding into the night
without consent
as if I were camouflaged
and dancing in a circle of horns forever
stars in a burning pattern
around the song-range of snow
your radioactive eyes
the edge of a thing
like a wall strewn with lovelettering
glancing over your shoulder
for the thieves of paradise


from American Thicket, released July 8, 2016
