One Thing Else

Fought it back

but it creeps

As extensions


As lack

creates overflow

of fantasy

And it(‘)s apparent

out of grasp


a closed



Holding some


thing else.


This Watch

This watch which wraps itself

around that wrist

connected to that hand

which in turn

holds open that book

not written with these words, this ink, those thoughts

that seemed important and distinct

at that time

when that watch

was showing

some time

long ago

forgotten with

these words

read and unwritten

but conceived.
