CHILDLIKE LANGUAGE SOMERSAULTS
 

Sleeps inside tree
with head against 
what is not yet
woodchips. Wild bon vivant in nightshirt
with spruce root about waist.
Neck is trumpet,
cannot be other,
than brass flower,
against the journey of these expanses
can do nothing but hoarsely shout –


Dog grows onions in tub

Fortune-hunting is done at toe-s...

How hen makes

My cow says

Yes, green fur

Sleeps inside tree

Scratch makes gangway


 
From Bo under ko, 1997.
