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
