new from above/ground press: LIVID REMAINDERS, by Geoffrey Olsen

Geoffrey Olsen

 ease splits long this
        about class, marks white
  tree distillate, fierce gloom
recede in place of
    accumulated people not said
  straight forward ocean recedes along
 shore vast purple black depth
   terror dailiness
   in proactive form
  everything in the space of “my life”
 rooted poet name
   fed cats at dawn
action resides collective turn
  broke piano
