Edge and Fold XLI-XLVIII

 

XLI

 

where is a written deer

running through a written forest

 

-Wisława Symborska

 

 

the written man in bed

with his unwritten wife

 

she who has written

his figure in that place

 

experience that lives

only in the written

 

a dark brown mouse

crossing to the mirror

 

vacant fishermen

staring into ponds

 

as if to write them

naked with indifference

 

what is fire writing

in the house of darkness

 

all inner space imagined

nothing in shadow

 

everything that is

written by what is not

 

 

—Paul Hoover
