the karpestra dairies


moving long sentence


she went together

with the soft smile

up until she

could not see

under these roots and rocks

slow moving cloud

grey pressing into the


true tree

touching the trembling schist


cheek peach perfect

lowering of the limp shores

increasingly enclothed

in a shifting

step over your bend as you keel over

lyrical core

pressing a beginning

of a lang lark songlet

serene says sucking

undulating rain dropping

river runnels


silence feathers

just there

right there

in the just there
