from White Piano

tr. Robert Majzels and Erín Moure

        stubborn backbone

        that chafes the depth of thoughts


in the plupresent of fear and ecstasy

in the simple present of our intelligent tissues

anon a landscape that rises like an ancient beast

flexible from throat to sex capable of flight and sudden

plunges of inebriate blue

the present wants the present up to the ears

then pain marks who is present; in the distance, cicadas

phrases unfurled 2ice without infinitive

at the time of the best sketches of solitude
