Star-pressed heat locked in where breath
is utterly / useless: hurled steel
cut against coral bleach
judged a lash out at perfume, shy in cups.
By & by yawning ochre
comes a germination or sod; houses
threaten to invert their dimensions,
slip by flesh-coloured.
You here, tracer, I can feel the precise
count of paces : yellow smoke
vanishes over fist into fucked air -
ripe for placement, a screaming butterfly
zones in on my brow's soft seal
dripping at the red's recant.
prised off my eyelash, set to snarl.
