ascension

lose me
in the fog

blue haze rivers

owl glow
baking nests

babies born
from leaf piles

what are we made of

feathers riddle sky

 

snaefellsjokull

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

||

saga age

I want to fight / your nightfall /churn

your skull / into / industrial revolution /

smash icebergs / melt away rivers / receding

glaciers / how could the world / be so round /

humans must transform / before they come

ashore / behead the trees / I sentence you

to death / dear squire

 

coastal break

I am the
raspberry bush
in
my chest

doom of beaks
pecking sand

quiet feeding the machine

please                 quiet feeding the machine

 

spooning rivers

salt and algae
covered raindrops

what entities

what inches

what coastal lungs
