Dawn doors and rain slopes
sky-ovals dropping tiny sap-filled wings
geometry of cut wood and cattails
blood plates and frozen ways
swamps pushing diagonally rooted flowers--
choke-hold of wave after wave
tickling a boat's motor--
imprints of finger-fur,
lines and their sprouting heads
full of snakes and soda

cool roller coaster wheels through
rings of tied-up gloves,
the interwoven dollar signs of dungarees,
asbestos closets leaking black light,
the sandy corners of drunk-slept rooms
spilling mirror fragments,
tangled dusty ropes
on the beer-fur of some giant's chest,
a knife kept in clinging paint
singing anchors to nested objects.
