From Birds:

a beast & look
bell shape

bell shapes in light
static molting shuttle
air glyph—

sects of birds
fill noise with nursing
at the window


silk throated madonnas

I was watching a monument
and I thought of you
fluid impure festivity
faceless sects


Susan dreamed the birds
were made of cloth
projecting themselves
onto her she collapsed
with stress

I cannot name
my enemies
only shadows
