it was a hinge point one of those events where
the past began to close up on the future

it was a can of worms breaking out just
beneath the surface a cannot on every lip

we will or will do nothing I walked the streets
by day I travelled the elementary canal I trawled

the suds at the basin’s edge it was nothing to do with

human values like laughter or time and place
I could live anywhere or with any one seems like

I have extracted the meat from the bone
I have developed curvature of the upper back
I am wrapping myself in skin
