Of crystal splinters you polish
Only one it binds you

To kiss the wound
Embedded in the swollen cleft a trigger

Of moans breathing
Is a kind of singing breathing

Is a kind of dancing words
On its wings shallow it grips

Life by the throat as the poem
Rests the countryside

Flashes by as marginalia
Erasures strikings-through
