John Wayne is watching / from his lacquered saw blade on the wall
Look at what happens / when you want to feed your family.
Madness / was madness, that’s all.
Winds cheat to pull heat from smoke
Certainly life / burned inside him.
A presence at a border draws / the arm of the light
scarlet or not, shelter or none, / centriole and silk filament,
eight rabbits in reins settle their / cottontail feet in the molasses earth / and begin their whimsical dancing
how many / times must I be broken and reassembled!
The air was a season they had bought…
