AT FIRST THE STRONG BLUE OINTMENT





watering all the members
            dousing the body
            heat
                       & its fluctuations

permit the sculptural values
            to surface as something different

is like an abscess)


AS SOON AS THE SUN COMES

              (for there is this sun
                         & then its cycles) 

a flesh start

book-ended by
some delight daily

straightened
so that each second seems

excessive
