Dorothy Wordsworth That voice inside saying universe from a big bag of marbles is unsatisfying, so we begin to wonder rightly why the rings remain such mystery, what that impossibly huge hexagon over the South Pole means and why we are nevertheless here And in this sense the world isn’t leper, isn’t makeup, isn’t joke—here too even when we can’t see it we know we feel something skeleton underneath more than overwhelming casual whiteness form or figure below here—when we realize the canyons weren’t cut by water in outer space, we sense a hand pinning jacket to our mannequin eyes, contouring so softly even if we can’t apprehend the body in fabric we see infinitely 37 small vocabularies, each ring of a piece, almost not there, shining evidence, event of this 38 Door Out.

I want to live in a world where rooftop tennis courts covered in confectioners’ snow stadium lights on all the south-facing windows—world where gates ajar rend my prayer where wren— 22 2 This page intentionally left blank Anglers (So Soon) Hulking the way it comes at me two quivering palms full of pine needle, the need you say they signify, the lack the way we wrap ourselves up against— If I had any say in this I’d say rolls in laughter earth’s last plantation of happiness sky, rainweed, the way the bead of dew against my face has to do with anything this morning unties me, rallies round energies bourn by all your tongue is born with all the jackals of the heart 25 Your tongue that sits astride numerous fresh with grove significance shot through with what comes to you wastrel or champion heart thing those words you get out of my mouth when the tin of primer tips and we all jump back, just like Nathan did because in my dream it’s me the explosion become syllable the hillside, having suddenly to do with dresses cleft-tongue of men and angels a hardware store, an Orange Julius stand next to a beautiful unfurled I’m sorry I love you Shot through with bone 26 It is the heart that hulks kisses someone else and I’m a white table in public, the way water pours from a canticle into a glass Alembic, I guess.

What have I near the water? My family moves around me. I have decided nothing (scares me). I look out across the water 18 and a spindly black spider turns out to be a tide crab. Little sister saying that’s a moth’s wing—up close Set waves, tide more like a feeling—my mother saying look at how many people died while we were away— Thin series of blurs like I was never there at all Like the other day I heard a woman talking to her friend at the bar I feel like I’m not good enough. I’ll never make money again, never fall in love.
