To:

To:

to balloons descending to man in the diminutive
in the crater by pier light
to the logotype eased the eyes upwards
to fields of water unsuited
for processions of beast & burial to summer’s
tactile deprivation interrupted
to skydivers in grass light
and waking up to wipe mirth off the table
to deciding to make a workhorse out of the leftovers
to a serialized lake, the first book
to the first book read the first time
to hi fives roll around zero gravity to
informal goodbyes against a light blue enamel
to animals return by palanquin
to death with a birds head holding court
to silence took on mutations like lovers to
the figure crouching in the long angling light
slack jawed and unsure of what fruit
it holds in its hand
the final interruption, cool, unglazed and terrestrial
