the isosceles of the familiar

drift drift sputter & lurch              

ripple it must, ripple it does

drift drift          

a warmth that adds as it leaves–

the plum leaves gone, the tomato, gone

drift drift sputter & lurch

a gray headstone of day, headstone & day

gray

but for drift drift sputter & lurch

the engine of sun hums

spivakov, bezrodny, what name will awaken?

kinnickinnick

purpled & rock-close in a moment of wind

in a moment made fast

minus this, minus that

unlike wind as it opens the forest

tree by tree

ripple it must, ripple it does
