Bluestone lips

behind the mirror

 

your rough skin and thick neck

 

my face delivered into working hands

a river salt leached in compound tide

palms breathing internally like a cup

heels compressed into my chin

into the folds of my forehead

skin peeled fingers

bearing weight

 

your shoulders braced away from wrists

Museum

in four limbs around an oval

man cerated

 

edges framed

and falling to cedar

 

expanding in triangular

their shadows white

 

footprints amidst

a maroon sea

 

the light of ceiling

soaked in a leaking flood

 

arial footed

lines pasted to the floor

 

a small diamond window hidden

in the belly of outside

Black — August 28, 2015

Black

the space behind the chalk
above her number plates

circular on the road
transparent on the window

the bottom of the trolley
on the buddha’s back

over the whole truck
behind an open sign

before the milk’s poured in
inside the lining of her boots

underneath the ‘specials’
the cover for an ashtray

a jacket sitting on the seat
between lips on a straw

the letter Z on a box
the lid of a bottle of booze

a tray glued to the wall
a pale plate stacked on blue
