Dog breath in its drawing back is God
 
Awakened to a patient etherized upon a table

Rerum Novarum the progress of light across a modern slum

Knowing naught the soft suppuration of naysayers

Nevermore a raven fills the mouths of the poor

Extinct light-bringers compose a nocturne

Solstice night what does it profit amid the stars?

Soliloquy of the drip by drip withdrawal of sight


 

Worm casts of presence and absence as a single state

In flux a showing forth of becoming

Sound of water signposted at a crossroads

Direct to its origins footnotes to the silence

On a blank slate the breath of God

Mirrored on the surface a missing word
