how this siting/setting takes precedent

a take (wake) inside
and steps sound
                        your moving sound/voice

this way of other
                         inference
a meditation on filling
                                                               an exchange of

but      not lake
                 not yet

yard
sparse underpinnings of ferndale stone wall

sidewalk hill
             waiting


keep you up?


stirring              this stirring
                           stuttered
                                 morning blue
                                 blurs absent
                                             blue

                        not yet

vast clasps of old left outs
                                      gone
or otherwise

from Thirty Days

:

lake
         its own
                                     waiting
:

shore
         old shadow(ed)

morn
morning

:

still/this sense wait(ed)

glassed fog and then

what walk you went

in threes and fours

goes unanswered

livens voiced an

               other

broke

       fog/(shore)


: bottom

all that has been said of what you hold

                                                       maritime peace and dues




:

quiet on comes
swelled rot/ swill rot
field
      felled husks
home                thoughts
thoughts             lees
leave in become
what to/will
place when
place/this staggers
tired place staggered
lees
quiet rot
