invisible—it’s easy to cut out some
greens and lower the chest
into others; the feeling of sensors
dead-headed so the brain can tilt
slightly down, express a joy aureole.

in the garden only half the rockets put down roots
and on the trail the lower belly of the mustard-

blue when the body is ovulating. It’s Memorial
Day, three more months of surplus
firecrackers in the stuck dark.
