to be in the foreign body as a luxury

of clandestine presence so only in my

apparent absence which is hidden but

shifted from the always there to

sometimes comes, sometimes stays,

sometimes goes alone to the beach

to walk inside the tidal atmosphere

and thick air, blowing sand & seagulls,

attributes of a resting place gaze, gazelles,

and let the words drift or sift as worlds

I’m coming into in a slow repose

to hear the sounds caught in their

throats as birds as language as bent

between the spaces I can imagine

if I keep my mouth closed & just listen
