from Cuts from a Nerve Diary



XXI – 8:41



each day is a culture

foreign, new


plunge pool


is attempts at consolation

recasting the flower catalogue


I’m ringed by acousmatics

filtered through


a fragmented garland I wear

of cut leaves

shorn locks


each day is questions


is it broken

does it work

what can you tell me


how much darkness light allows

a 235 yard tunnel
