Dusk is Anytime at the Edge of Hibernation

 

Leaves     ( : )    a multitude of commas

 

& bird’s breasts, or fish tales (dreams).      Loose

their distinction; mulch beneath dogwood.

and you who

 

leave your marks: apostrophes in snow

sign of possession, or, a dress

heard best in slow thought.

 

 

 

 

The eye wood, or we would, or were.

Not unaware, but a dream of there.

Poof !     Mind-darts

 

or hooves.   Who avers,   evokes.

Awareness of some thing already set

 

 

in motion (click). Sit here & say about it,

 

(you who are already                     out of the element,

the gold field).                Live (t)here,      as           hermetic

 

crossroads,                   the way a snake   does,   slithering

in its own medium.           A whimper

 

from sleep?      Near(ly).      ( To be close

followed by the fisherman

& the fish hook ).

 

The topography of   dream

dreams      up,

descends           to wake.

 

Fur, you say,   asleep in the mountain.

 

Who     else     is the     bear’s     friend?

What     else     can     say     this .  ..     Is     the     ear     that         repeats     between     sheets?
