bring out obscure facts: the binding’s coming loose again
and needs to be laid out upon the lawn 
like a birthday party:
at one time crinoline was preferred to everything:
these give us a blur of scenery: there is a sadness
building from the inside out:
               it is (too) good to see you:
hurl dragonflies across the lake to find
a tempo more suited for the nose:              
being late is part of the repertoire now:             
I almost called you in the middle of the night
but gathered enough self-control and fell
               asleep with the window open:                           
wouldn’t I like to know where you disappear
to when I can no longer possess your ankles:
there are three words you will never say:
they are not what we expect them to be
