let’s live suddenly without thinking
under honest trees,
does.the brain of cleverly-crinkling
-water pursues the angry dream
of the shore. By midnight,
scratches the skin of the organised hills
an edged nothing begins to prune
let’s live like the light that kills
and let’s as silence,
because Whirl’s after all:
(after me)love,and after you.
I occasionally feel vague how
vague idon’t know tenuous Now-
spears and The Then-arrows making do
our mouths something red,something tall

what about when i find you in the bushes
what about when it’s cold outside
you can’t do that shit no more
did you know
that you can buy property on the moon
one guy owns the moon
he’s also a trained ventriloquist
there’s a phone number you can call
you get a certificate and everything
30 bucks an acre
we don’t have to be here no more
but we could still exist
Cayla called us from Syracuse, NY.

The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.
Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too,
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.
Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In fullgrown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
Deep Strips, vol. 15
so believe me when i tell you that early before dinner
when you boiled that pot of water and then just pulled it from the burner
i thought you were crazy
and i’m sorry
you said it wasn’t quite time yet
but when we needed it
the water would be ready
how it boils faster now that it has known the temperature
i’m sorry i said the extra seconds that could ever be saved
weren’t worth the bother
because now thinking of you and you and you and you
waiting for the right hour when we’re finally together
then tiny seconds do matter
how quickly we’ll remember"
