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

(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
designates . Transtromer playing Hayden
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?
