new from above/ground press: Scientia, by Jordan Abel

Jordan Abel

Oecanthus ladon

All colour terms are reduced, cut short, not the usual
length. Acephalous: without a head. Those muscid ad-
ditions that give the glandular structure that branching
apex. Abrupt or hidden. Rubbed or scraped. The third
abductor extending past the honeycomb of the op-tic tract.
The tapering surface made white like a siphon.
