Instructions For Folding

By: Anne Carson and Robert Currie

water rushing over rocks
as you would say see that cloud
it is as you would buy gold in the mail
what the dusk does it does one thing
have the cornstalks personify autumn
some in, some out
have the cornstalks personify autumn
it is as you would buy gold in the mail
have hands like young birds
it is as you would buy gold in the mail

water rushing over rocks
have your river like a glass falling infinitely on the inside
salute
some in, some out
it is as you would buy gold in the mail

a single sheet of paper
water rushing over rocks
some carnal, some clear
gold foil
between two trees is draped a temporary home

salute
a small bird placed inside your vest
a small bird placed inside your vest
femur rests in pelvis
some Saint Genet types, some just cruel
