my earth today a desert arizona earth. we go to flagstaff, we go to jerome, we go to phoenix. in flagstaff we go to the boat house, the view, the view, we go to the mountain, we go to the view, we look to the canyon, the river–landmarks of loss. then phoenix to old friends, to the bar, the casino, the garden, the smog, to the airport, to the buildings, american stores or dreams, to the sun, to the dirt, to the air conditioning. in arizona we go to goodbye, we go to hello old friend, hello old earth, new dirt, new grief, new earth, my earth.
the wood bird with its tonal haw
disordering of sound
all-new line cut
break through, wave wash, ghost ark, free fall
and disapproving song
taps taps against the house
makes slats individual
makes them know–
it won’t take much to come loose
your earth what is it like on your earth my earth just recently grew spherical began an orbit around something other than the sun my earth takes its reflection from the repeating explosion of the supernova over and over my earth is rampant with animals stretching their necks above the line of gravity their heads just floating while their bodies stay planted keeping them safe.
my earth creates its own words and speaks into space just to communicate and leave the suave leave the suave my earth is not suave but stays open to the venn diagram center of all earths.
