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
