In the damage
Whack-jammer of birds
I go the wrong way
I drink the long day

My head is paydirt
And a scrambled skyway
I kiss the fences
I’m mostly tenses

When you collect me, I’ll be dishes
I’ll be Veery throated attentions,
Leafscapes, books, and dogs.
We’ll walk the pathways, mostly separate
But nobody else will get that
So you can forget that

I’m the leaping of antlers
Cold killer of walls
I go the long way
I drink the wrong day

Your face is paper
And a cursive call
I use the nervouser drawl
I take the weapons to heart

When you reflect me, I’ll be listening
To the stereo in the kitchen,
Dear You, Sandinista
The starlight’s traffic won’t replace us
With a universe that’s graceless
So never forget this

When you connect me, I’ll translate you
In a half-light nobody wakes to
Starbursts, wreckage, and bombs
The sunlight’s verbiage won’t deface us
With a paradise of exits
So never forget that
