new from above/ground press: Like the noises alive people wear, by R. Kolewe

Like the noises alive people wear
R. Kolewe


In the next room someone reading stage directions
trying to name the scene familiar foreign
always even what comes next is far away.

No correct one. A branching
tangled tree overgrown with vines, no line
breaks now. Monochrome, only edges.
