WHAT IS IT?



WHAT IS IT?

hare lip
potato head

sleeping dog face
turned round twice

I saw explicit photographs
from the 1890s

of a forest
it was no forest

but they sure were
sexy trees

imagine your face
was puppies

echidnas
electrons

dwarf stars
ants

I walk
through the city

on postage stamp
legs

the city walks
on its basements

roots
hidden rivers

an electron
48

single
invisible

seeks electron
interested in

small things
hopes this winter

is the last
sad thing

my eyes
are dog–eared

tired
like a book

exhausted with
its own content

from the other side
a lake

is all other lakes
like words or

the face
