4. Augustus Papaceno (b. 24 May 1996) Impulse to breathe, heaving the torso through The icy grip of someone else’s world, Bursting the crisp, sun-dazzled layer of the new Stunned flesh you are: Augustus Papaceno. How many thousand times you’ll break our hearts, To translate this into the you we’ll know (As we’ve done too, until that day this starts Again, when from new wombs we’re thrust, uncurled And screaming at the air’s first hardening). I’ll tell you a secret, boy: there is no other Life. Your father’s a gentle man.

[47] W H AT T O D O W H AT T O S AY Don’t look at a mirror for several days. Reform the hollow just above the tongue Below the roof till its occlusion says What it will name you then. Inside the lung, A breath lies waiting to surround the word That breathed before you, beating in the ground. Sometimes at night it climbs out like a bird And looks at you, and folds its wings around Your rising, falling frame.
