The poem is below.


A modern form

No frames of Arts
No articulation of the tongue to fight
Words
low enough to skip
the storm

Sing the silence

A circular dream that does not want to be woken up

Words plugged into their stammer
worries stack up without pause
Like something drilling.


I stare into the fire.
I close my eyes. That makes a dark line mine.

The finger beats the guitar without strings.

An hour to think.
