november moon                  
 
Length passed;
dimension fled;—
 
(ivy moon
a pale slug eating
a downed poppy)
 
i had knocked
on the door
     & wept—
 
& the moon didn’t answer
but the door
     with three
corners did—
 
 

november moon
 
All souls, raise your hands—
 
(easier done than said)
 
i have a little headache,
you said to the word—
 
& the word described
as water came
in the style of a stem
by a stream
by a stone;
 
it is wild that you lived,
said the word—
