Show and Tell
The second time I presented a rattler in a mason jar,
since I kept vanishing into the desert
Maybe it’s true. Nothing worked, neither
The Sum of It
It’s just the way of things—to push
My shadows stumble over mountain, in
they trip over the span of the Atlantic; the Pyrenees,
over there. My words
cast shadows across cacti
strolls aimlessly through snow
the shadows as much me as I:
on the street, wet with morning rain,
open a gash in sky
played, surging back and forth.
midstep to look up,
sparrows peppering the creek of gray-blue,
the walls, opening like a veil.
