circling

Posted to Action Poetry




forget your name
seal up your mouth
lock behind the spyhole
slide the jargon across
a wooden message sky

upholster your place
in your corner of time
dip all your space into
your language bowl
and acquaint
your smile
with the fox that
steps in and out life
in front
of you

ignore the questions
carve a field from the block
of forgetting
to catch moments
of sweet
moist rhetoric

taste memory:
an arrow
circumnavigating
the nomadic rock

move your tongue
in elliptical motions
around your narrative
end of summer

lick these woods
lick them
lick them in rotating bliss
these slivers
that live in the
eternal grooves of
your fingertips
