everyone choosing deepstep


the tongue the hair the leg

the scent the door the rain

the sightless


in stranger’s breath the jewel opens

to last within the stars


he calls “we're paint breath all in all”


stars deep line

turned signal love

to fences call the world leave


blinded


the sad love the car sky the poultice

the into eyes the glove


the eyes that closed within eyes


there's love’s

driver


boneman kind the stranger’s part paints stranger’s stars


everyone choosing deepstep


the hot-herb the darkened room the breath

the shift the hour the driver dogs


I'll with meat eyes make

I'll in darkened room

I’ll the road to shift the stars


I'll the streak the lungs the moon lane


I'll is for morning’s morning love

the blear the boneman the vineyard now


We're the mullein then the river then the driver dogs


public places pale the skin


the line the glove the then for what


for dreams eyes evening’s flame


& there’s you still thrill hour of the would to love
