more or less

Owls bring the earth to daylight
solar coils of barbed wire
worship the difference between
the grave and the flippant
too precious for tongues
shriveled lemons and noisy shrubs
aren’t ready to deal with
mute songs of soiled garments
pocket knives invite
maimed ants onto the fringes of
slick eyes
people are prone to count
crows eagles pigeons or swallows
depending on their place of birth
the most desperate count
discarded shoes
a man in sportswear
keeps walking along a highway
reading a paperback
a couple with bricks in the armpits
sleep on a cockerel’s comb
aliens bury the kinfolk
in air ducts and acoustic guitars
(dust is too precious for lungs)
