next

ask anyone—

 

the ripest lives

are soonest plucked

 

           & charming 

offspring often weirdly

step on lines

 

then disappear

 

leaving the town

to the others

 

who stand off vexing epsilon

 

                arriving

as a bridge arrives

 

at intervals

at a city’s knees

 

a lyric’s

exhausted duration

 

         pummeled 

out of feet
