That when how this

If ever there a time it.
Before that insufficient utterance.
When a reconstructed hollow.
Ask and you necessarily.
One way or the other
hollow or slant thin.

The other later denied he hid
between his rounded shoulders.
Why that then.
Revise that to this —
said to expand hollowed out thin
slant plunge to sufficient utterance -
smooth awkward edge ahead.
There, how when this


loneliness villanelle
one illness senses signs
nest once no one notices
none note sent lines nonetheless

one lone cot sigh
entices ten cents
one illness senses signs
one notes nightlight
tense set lent
none note sent lines nonethless

silence on sill tone
not one nil
one illness senses signs

hindsight cite it
sighting senses height
none note sent lines nonetheless

twice tight more or less
two lines sing
one illness senses signs
none note sent lines nonetheless
