SENSE

00:00 / 00:38

come twisted from the pitch 

into sap and lymph

 

till the stirrings of a world 

accident the surface

 

as asphalt’s brutal glint 

and the trees the trees

 

see me as I see them 

glutted by cloud and bodies 

 

brimming with prophecy 

untethered

 

the mouth the window

water’s lucent edge

 

photo of a landscape

or are we being greedy

 

hear the witchgrass calling 

disorder disorder
