Ownership

 

Sometimes, the revolution starts in the yard, but ends in the main

house. What wasn’t tied down floated back out into the middle of the

sea and is a possession gained. If we’re counting again, please consider

my placement of your fingers the first derangement. The other parts of

ammunition are made of words and we know how to fire them at

each other.

 

—Amish Trivedi


 

 

Fogs You Come

 

the sky fishlike as

horses dramatic and strange

strange small whole

with a new calendar

purloined sunlight

specializing in yellow

register individual

moose in the sky

from what the wild

ships naked running

his Dutch husband

and four mosques

snake over the

rainbow of red

meat hedonisms get rich

from a quid waves of

sleep a lovely

alarm my lost mason

jar the lonely bird

below a wall
