Thank you, Greg!
X. So They Winked And Were Glad as the Day Grew Late
Gone beyond becoming, we filled
the house with phantoms & called
up monsters from the deep.
Buried the dagger, illuminated
the windows. Choked
the blinded alley with most
exquisite filigreed leaf
& vine. Making sense
of another dark night, I’m learning
IX. A Part of This World, and a World of Its Own
It was time as a color, or my
life, in miniature.
It was sunrise & my feet got wet
in the dew. It was all the moon
did, it was my hair, full
A pocketful of frogs, the girl who
gave birth to rabbits, the happiest
crocodile, & party hats for all.
