That trick where the tulips

turn menacing

like the mushrooms did

two years before


or the sharp rust glimpse

of fox made thought

or the transported flea

conjoining lovers


Ah! Lettered objects

finely wrought, still

so far from my window.

If you enjoyed the above poem, you may enjoy a preview of my first published volume Shining in Brightness.
