Do the dead read

Uncaria tomentosa

greetings breathless

in orange smiles


Do the dead read

low rise tide cakes

lined with

woven birds


Do the dead read


barley hemlock


Do the dead read

shapeless combs

dissolved synesthesia

feel mouthless

honeyed marathons

jocund sprints

having nowhere to go

all the time in the world



Gassho, Walt

(dandelion snow)


no use crying on

blue goat Shabbat

pigeons could

be doves

onion edge

leaf tilt

red sprout

conifer scar

garlic escape

lupin star
