A cancer that begins
in the brain
becomes synonymous
with the brain

an ingrown toenail
total eclipse


Hurrying to clear the concrete
pad before the next
snowfall, Lili folds herself
into the crawlspace

with a red toy shovel


Snow falls in Weather

my iPhone in direct contradiction
to the stock-still standing sky

digital flakes
bytes, a unit of memory size


I call my phone
on your phone

I call myself
from every room
in the house
hearing nothing

I do not answer


Things turn up in the loam

other than hibernating
mosquito embryos

each object with its own
karmic weight

a dog chain, baby
spoon, green cigarette
lighter still flicks

the previous occupant
fallen through the deck boards
