A Rise in Sets


I don’t want
the shoes designed
for my trip

breaks occur as
a windshield light show

is ‘attention to’ this   no this is this

but you could
collapse that physics
with a splinter

properly placed, or not quite



unimportance is

launching one bead
to glide
spaciously on mind’s pulley

also the anecdotist’s

fireplace pose
may get on your nerves

still able to catch

onto gleaming magazine,

pink sachet and three flagpoles  
as writing throws
a nervousness along them
