an angry fire
banzu fale panje xusra
sans instruction
what the deal is · syn apt ic on

music and the touch of her skin
wasp on the morning air · one shadowy
veil so yields to another

far from the city i ind

to think of the circus
from the smell of fresh woodchips

hands are torn from wrists
that tried to write this
