I share a wolf howl      head pointed         all afternoon      of fragmented

doings        left/ right        in a pack       pre urges      worn over      dawn

in the sky        like the fingers of Cancer      with an        intervened      Y

staring into itself     for a moment in space    The white sea.   a half- moon

swimming inside       for days       for weeks       by possibilities       awake

a riot         calm      an income field          eyeing the wind      eyeing the rain

giving in       mute fashions        firsthand      with every flower      of a

face scraped mosaic       an afterthought lesion         topless in the sentence

somehow calloused        a gathered poise       as inwardly          from reality

stippled presences      ignited remains      without       some compass of fate

paged pages    unforeseen ashes   nameless shapes   twisted gold   of a spirit

like esprit   falling apart    to ascertain standing    making certain that silence

a nursery rhyme        to my questions           on found            stressed leaves

seeking        singularity       like a field        onto childhood        this sentence
