If you put off writing for an hour, how is the poem affected?

Time & word. Weight & shadow.

Words articulated approximate the weight of feather. Those unspoken carry the heft of brick.

Timing is everything with food, and always the weight of the cook's hand, evident.

  1. Your hand on my back

    a gesture behind the shadows
    as if walking in one's sleep

    all figures are not all there
    a simpler side of daylight

    and we would be fair
    and we would vanish for a king
