spiny paths once a hand

or cluster of them

how do they apply the

curve of the turnpike

the feeling of lace the

setting out of a caravan

not for us rapid motion

that come from worms

floating in lamplight

cold and clear

some few refuse to

jump all these geese

swimming in the

opposite direction
