Example text

When I turn back the petals, I uncover the silver, jeweled beetle. [38] SCISSORS Without much attention, I slip on the rings of the scissors and work in the poor light of the kitchen. The blades chomp at the cloth I hold in my hand. Upstairs the night is stale as this cup of water. [39] SHELLS In winter you can blow into them like God’s horn: Some are ivory vagabonds with chafed limbs. The fat, bodiless infant star tumbles its reincarnation before the rotation of the planets. Sea horses slice paper warriors on wooden sticks.

50] RELIC DREAM Wading in a shallow crook of the river, pilgrims surround the relic raised on a palanquin— It’s a fine piece of carved wood, oiled, perfumed, full of weight, shaped roughly like a human foot or phallus— a wooden boat—that’s how to bathe a god, gently and solemnly, the way to bathe an infant, for the first time in the object world. But a boat will drift over water, shoe-shaped, at the start of a journey, float like a suitcase. [51] T H E AT R I C A L O F C L OW N S Children’s musical cylinders revolve and the circus troop gathers in the natural light of the garden.

Tangled string now what have I done? Silence engine at the bottom of the glass. Flat tin voice of the deaf. [35] R A I N O N T H E M O U N TA I N The mountain is a mirror of the stranger’s anatomy, the organs roped together. Drooping pines at the base form a canopy for the traveler the size of a dot and the rocks and damp wooden steps are drawn with the same pen lines as the waffle pattern of the velvet clusters of moss. At the top, where it rains, everything is scratched out. [36] T H E R AT Not the dapper bespectacled little grandfather with quilted silk coat and leather boots but the long-tailed, appallingly limp carcass left by the cat in freezing wind.
