For Patrick, with love
Shallow recollections. Just writing. Sycophant discovery tabulating a mooring. How
blooms to broken pax. Pledged, whetted & blunt. The shiny earth teases worms to its pout,
disgorges energy load. The cipher too tired, co-ordinated raising of weft and hand.
Past armour caked a body live singing, a person without skin. Transcribe me. The text is
bodied insofar as I am juiced green fields
Panoply of orphaned distance
Take refuge in identity.
Can arm tacit trash garlic. Laden in my chequered escape are cheap romance, thick
permutations, chlorophyll spikes. I am a girl for action, anything you want me to be.
A Mexican white bone tree crawling out of
the gauze of no-place.
