A mouse moves. In sudden urgency. 
Unseen all.

showed you how to sculpt
as if discreetly yours


they told you of your godhood
at Harvard

To jot down this poem

And who all would be 
Joining along 
I'm as surprised as you 
To these goings on 

I don't recollect

She was the apple of her father’s eyes

To keep his daughter well fed and clothed.

Where Is My Mind
My thumbs in my mouth as saliva drips out
